APOLLO Command Module Test Article

This board is a Command Module compatible with the Apollo ATCA blade family (http://apollo-blade.info). The Rev A board is primarily intended to validate the mechanical design and provide a platform for testing production service modules. It has the following features:

  • Standard CM mechanics with two sets of high/low speed mating connectors and mounting holes
  • Loop-back of all high-speed serial links
  • Header connector access to all low-speed signals
  • High-current screw-type terminal access to 12V and GND

Rev A Board submitted to JLC and received 3/21/22.

Rev B board and Mezzanine submitted to JLC 4/27/22

Rev B changes

  • Place header connectors on grid (0.1")
  • Change connectors from 2x20 to 2x25 to account for extra power pins.
  • Mounting holes:
    • Add front panel mounting hardware points (maybe reproduce Charlie's scheme using right-angle bus connectors?)
    • Correct splice plate mounting hole sizes
    • Add mounting holes for mezzanine board
  • Replace 3.3V regulator with a larger one to support mezzanine boards
  • Add 5V regulator if needed by mezzanine boards
  • Add 12V, 3.3V (and 5V?) pins to mezzanine connectors

Also we have a bunch of these Trenz modules: TE0714 which belong to Ed. They can support up to 6.25 Gbps.
