AdvancedTCA "Building Blocks"

ADLINK's AdvancedTCA portfolio features two processor blades, three switch blades, two control modules and a rackmount chassis.

The processor blades are available in either a dual processor configuration with the Low Voltage Intel® Xeon® processor 2.8GHz or a single processor configuration with the Intel® Xeon® processor 3.2GHz, both on an 800MHz system bus. Theses blades are PICMG 3.4 ATCA Advanced Switching Option 3 compliant, support quad ASI x4 fabric interface channels up to a five-slot full-mesh configuration at 32 Gbps, and provide dual DDR2-400 REG/ECC channels with up to 16 GB memory.

The AdvancedTCA hub switch boards with 19 GbE uplink ports support the PICMG 3.1 Ethernet backplane interconnect and offer a 24-port 10/100/1000Base-T base interface (12 node-slot, 8 egress, 2 SHMC ports, 1 inter-switch and 1 control plane port) and a 24-port 1000Base-BX fabric interface (14 node-slot, PICMG 3.0 option 1 ports, 2 egress, and 8 RTM ports). These switch blades also provide layer 2/3 packet switching and routing, support chassis of up to 14 slots, and include the Vitesse® VSC7310 GbE switch-on-a-chip.

The AdvancedTCA chassis management modules are PICMG 3.0 compliant and provide highly reliable hardware management of blades and subcomponents. Available in a 4U x 280mm x 4HP form factor, these modules utilize a Pigeon Point System® ShMM-500 based design and provide a redundant IPMB bus topology, a redundant shelf manager design, and a front panel access with dual 10/100Base-T Ethernet to fabric ShMC ports.

The rackmount chassis is a 5U five-slot AdvancedTCA rackmount system that supports full mesh topology fabric interface and standard Rear Transition Module slots. It is designed for a 19" rack and measures 15.3 inches deep. It is also equipped with a dual-bussed IPMB interface.
