Up to 2 PCI Express® Mini Cards, -20 to +85°C Operating Range
The F223 is a rugged single Eurocard CompactPCI carrier board supporting the PCI Express Mini Card standard. The standard version of the F223 offers two PCI Express Mini Card slots with USB and PCI Express connection. It allows using all types of cards for wireless applications making it possible to extend the functionality of a CompactPCI system in the same fast and easy way as a common notebook.
It is possible to reset and power on and off the two PCI Express Mini Cards separately without having to reset the whole system.
Flexible Antenna Configuration at the Front
Different front panels are available as an accessory so that each PCI Express Mini Card can be connected to a flexible number of robust redundant external antenna connectors at the front.
Large Number of SIM Cards
Using a plug-in adapter board as many as eight additional SIM cards per PCI Express card can be implemented. Even with the adapter assembled the board still only needs a width of 4 HP. Another option is to equip the board with a USB-SIM emulator for controlling SIM cards on a central server.
For Harsh and Mobile Environments
The F223 is designed for -20 °C to +85 °C operating temperature and is conformally coated in order to be used also in harsh and mobile environments. The final environmental qualification depends on the respective cards used on the carrier.
