The F206I is a 3U 8HP CompactPCI® bus card which provides a PC/104 interface supporting PC/104 extension boards. An on-board PCI-to-ISA bridge links the ISA bus of the PC/104 module with the 32-bit/33-MHz CompactPCI® bus.
The F206I can be configured to work with most PC/104 modules. By default, PCI accesses are translated to 0xDxxxx, so that PC/104 modules which can be jumpered or configured to that address will work without software modification.
For other PC/104 modules, software modifications or modified F206I FPGA content may be necessary.
For detailed information as to whether your PC/104 module works with F206I, see the user manual or ask MEN support.
Memory as well as I/O access is possible. The interrupt routing can be done in a very flexible way.
DMA on the ISA bus is currently not supported but can be made available as an option.
The PCI-to-ISA bridge is realized by means of an FPGA which is loaded automatically after power-up out of a 2MB standard NOR Flash device.
The F206I is delivered with one closed 4HP front panel. Depending on the PC/104 module/s used on the F206I it might be necessary to adapt the required front panels (see MEN accessories) and to provide specific cabling to connect the PC/104 module to the front (please contact PC/104 module manufacturer).
The F206I is designed for use in rugged environments. For example, all components are specified for an operation temperature of -40 to +85°C.
