AMC Spec Provides More Power And Options

The AMC.0 R.2 specification from PICMG (PCI Industrial Computer Manufacturers Group) increases the maximum power for MicroTCA cards by 60 to 80 W and the management power from 100 to 150 mA. It also defines a new midsize module and better LED faceplace placement guidelines. Additions were made as well allowing press fit, surface-mount, and through-hole style connections versus the initial compression-fit style along with support for a variety of ejector handles that will increase the areas where MicroTCA can be used.
