IEEE Standard Physical and Environmental Layers for PCI Mezzanine Cards: PMC

This standard, in conjunction with IEEE Std 1386-2001, IEEE Standard for a CommonMezzanine Card (CMC) Family, defines the physical and environmental layers of a PCI mezzaninecard (PMC) family to be usable on (but not limited to) single slot VME, VME64 and VME64x boards,CompactPCI boards, Multibus I and Multibus II boards, desktop computers, portable computers,servers, and similar types of applications. The electrical and logical layers are based on the PCIspecification from the PCI Special Interest Group. The PCI mezzanine cards allow for a variety ofoptional function expansions for the host system. I/O functionality from the PMC may be either through the mezzanine front panel, or via the backplane by routing the I/O signals through themezzanine connector to the host.

IEEE Standard for a Common Mezzanine Card Family: CMC

Administratively withdrawn January 2007. The mechanics of a common mezzanine card (CMC) family are defined in this standard.Mezzanine cards, designed to this standard, can be used interchangeably on VME, VME64 andVME64x boards, CompactPCI u00a4 boards, Multibus u00a4 I and II boards, desktop computers, portablecomputers, servers, and other similar types of applications. Mezzanine cards can provide modularfront panel I/O, backplane I/O or general function expansion or a combination for host computers.Single, wide mezzanine cards are 75 mm wide by 150 mm deep by 8.2 mm high.
