MicroTCA Chassis Boasts 40G Capability

According to VadaTech, its VT866 MicroTCA is designed to handle 40GbE (10Gbas-KR) signals (a draft specification for 40GbE is in committee in the PCI Manufacturer's Industrial Computer Group or PICMG). The 5U chassis holds up to 12 full-sized Advanced Mezzanine Card (AMC) modules in the single-width format. Multiple fabrics can be routed on the same backplane. Currently, MicroTCA-based systems use PCI Express, Gigabit Ethernet, and Serial RapidI/O fabrics. It features a 36-layer backplane containing a high-performance dielectric material for clean signals. Also included are dual, rear-mounted 1000-W swappable power supplies. Easy-glide lining allows the power supplies to be smoothly inserted/removed from the chassis. The system integrates a Telco alarm and optional JTAG switch module. In addition, the company offers a 40GbE MicroTCA carrier hub (MCH) and 40GbE line cards.
