Mezzanine I/O Expansion Board • PMC/XMC Module Carrier

Available as a mezzanine add-on expansion board to the CCG-RUMBA and successor CPU cards, the CCK-MARIMBA provides a number of additional I/O functions. First of all, the CCK-MARIMBA itself is a carrier board, suitable for accommodation of either a single width PMC or XMC module. The additional SATA/PATA controller is useful for attachment of mass-storage devices, either on-board mounted, or externally (by cable).
Furthermore the CCK-MARIMBA is equipped with a SIO, which provides legacy I/O ports, such as serial, parallel, KB/MS (all available across rear I/O). A secondary Firmware Hub can be configured as alternate- or backup-BIOS. Another option available is the Trusted Platform Module according to TPM 1.2 for safety critical applications. The CCK-MARIMBA will be attached on top of the CPU carrier board, and typically shares its
front panel with the host carrier (usually 8HP front panel width in total). Interconnection between the CCK-MARIMBA I/O module and the CPU carrier board is achieved by two expansion connectors, which comprise the PCIe
(PCI Express x 4) and LPC (Low Pin Count) interfaces. As an option, the CCK-MARIMBA is available with a mezzanine module (C20-SATA), which accommodates one or two 2.5-inch SATA hard disk drives (RAID option). Additionally, a CompactFlash card adapter can be mounted on bottom of the CCK-MARIMBA.
