This passive extender card allows developers to install a CompactPCI card into a standard Universal 3.3V or 5V PCI system, avoiding the need for a dedicated CompactPCI system for development work.
The design also includes a reset button, for convenient push-button resetting of the test card without resetting the host computer. This feature is extremely useful when debugging hardware interactions requiring a hardware «clean slate». (This is a hardware reset only. It does not restore the PCI configuration space.)
NOTE: Ensure the cPCI card under test supports the bus voltage used by the adapter’s PCI host system. Consult your system documentation to determine the voltage on your PCI connector.
Insert the adapter into the desired slot in your host system. Connect the test cPCI card into the connector.
