PPMC Board Manufacturers

This is a listing of COTS PPMC Mezzanine Card manufacturers, as PrPMC cards, defined by VITA-32.
The types of products or devices they produce are listed under the company name, in alphabetic order.
The Mezzanine Buses page contains a description and pinout information for many of the Mezzanine Board Form Factors listed above.
While the links at the top of the page cover the manufacturers that produce Mezzanine boards.

The Processor PMC board is basically an up-grade to the PMC board standard, but the PMC standard is still valid on its own.
The PPMC standard changed a few specifications and added enhancements to work better with micro-processors.
A PPMC module will work with a carrier card designed to accept a PPMC module or with a carrier card designed to support a PMC card.
However with all backward capable designs the enhancements implemented with PPMC will be lost on a PMC carrier board.
In other words a PPMC module reverts to a PMC board when installed on a PMC carrier card.
The PPMC specification uses the CMC standard for the mechanical definitions, as does the PMC format.

The companies listed above that manufacture Processor PMC cards and in general also produce other Mezzanine board styles.
However the odds of wanting more than one mezzanine style doesn't come up that often.
Of course there are times when purchasing a cheaper IP card to run some I/O makes more sense than reusing a PPMC board.
Then again the simple IP card might contain a lot more I/O lines than a PPMC, and at differing drive levels.

VITA 32 was ratified in 2003, but for what ever reason there are not many companies producing PrPMC boards.

A Mezzanine card is a daughter-card used or mounted on industrial embedded computer cards.
The PPMC boards are some of the more complex and densely populated card formats.
The PPMC specification and the mechanical CMC specification are open standards, so any company could develop their own proprietary cards.
