14-Slot Full Mesh Backplane Targets ATCA Systems

Claimed to be the industry's first 14-slot full mesh backplane for AdvancedTCA systems, the new backplane features integrated connectors for interfacing to a fan unit and to dual-shelf managers. AdvancedTCA (ATCA) is based on PICMG 3.0 specs being developed by the PCI Industrial Computers Manufacturers Group (PICMG); the shelf manager interface is based on Intel ZT 7102 Chassis Monitoring Modules (CMMs) with software enhancements to support added ATCA functionality. Measuring 344 mm x 430 mm x 8 mm, the ATCA backplane lists among its options slot counts from two to 14, special bussing configurations, a Dual Star architecture, and power supply and cooling interconnects. Pricing ranges from $500 to $5,000, depending on options selected. For more information, call George Ross at PENTAIR ELECTRONIC PACKAGING, Schroff Products, Warwick, RI. (888) 550-9543.
