Card Facilitates AdvancedTCA Shelf Management

The IPM Sentry ShMM-500 with Shelf Management Controller (ShMC) cross-connect from Pigeon Point Systems can plug into a range of AdvancedTCA, AdvancedMC, and CompactPCI boards to support shelf management. ShMC cross-connects improve redundancy by allowing the two shelf managers in an AdvancedTCA shelf to communicate with both of the Ethernet hub boards instead of just one. The shMM-500 lets designers only switch over a failed type of module instead of an entire board.

Modules cost $350.
