PMCD3 is a multifunction PMC with Gigabit Ethernet, serial, and Firewire (IEEE 1394) interfaces. This PMC supports three copper 10/100/1000BaseT ports and, optionally, two fiber optic 1000BaseLX or 1000BaseSX Ethernet ports. Three of the ports can be active at any one time. Two of the copper ports are routed to rear I/O, the third can be routed to either the front or rear (factory build option). The two optional fiber optic ports are routed through the front panel via fully rugged low-profile optical receivers.

Two fast asynchronous/synchronous serial ports are implemented via the Marvell Discovery III integrated system controller while two additional asynchronous ports are implemented via the dual UART.

A maximum of three Firewire (IEEE 1394) ports are available with two ports dedicated to rear I/O and, if required, a third routed to front I/O.
