One Stop Systems' XMC x8 Gen 2 host cable adapter enables high-speed expansion over a PCIe cable
One Stop Systems (OSS) introduces the XMC x8 Gen 2 host cable adapter, enabling high-speed expansion over a PCIe cable. The XMC is the PCI Express version of the PMC (PCI Mezzanine Card) and is installed on a CPU board in a host system. A PCIe x8 cable inserted into the cable connector on the face of the XMC expands the PCIe bus to a PCIe downstream device or expansion chassis. Gen 2 speeds provide greater bandwidth for applications demanding high-speed throughput such as video, imaging and audio devices and requires no additional software or drivers to operate.
The short XMC form factor makes it easy to install in any carrier with an XMC connector. The XMC x8 cable connector on the bezel and the PCIe x8 edge connector are routed directly to the Pericom 5804 redrivers. Since the XMC x8 host cable adapter is based on redriver technology, there are no latency obstacles to throughput.
