MicroTCA chassis

1 September 2010 Enclosures, Racks, Cabinets & Panel Products

Kontron’s new MicroTCA platform OM6060 is a compact and modular development platform that is configured for the design, evaluation and test of small, compact and highly integrated multiprocessor systems.

The system is targeted as a solution for prototypes in test equipment, packet processing and industrial applications. The chassis is 3U high, 250 mm deep and 156 mm wide. It contains an AC power supply and fans with airflow from below the AdvancedMC slots. The OM6060 can accommodate up to six mid-size AMCs, one full-size MicroTCA Carrier Hub, and supports multiple PCIe, GbE and SRIO configurations.

The platform supports multiple CPUs and I/O boards over PCI Express (PCIe) without the need for an extra PCIe fabric switch, helping to reduce system costs. PCIe fabric clocks are generated on the OM6060’s backplane. The compact MicroTCA platform also provides Ethernet connectivity to all AMCs; in such configurations an Ethernet switch is located on the MCH. Depending on the level of Ethernet features required, Kontron offers a low-cost unmanaged MicroTCA Carrier Hub, the AM4901, or a fully featured MCH with carrier grade switching and management features, the AM4904.

For packet processing applications, the OM6060 provides extra direct Ethernet links between AMC slot 1 and four adjacent AMC slots, which can be used by an AMC packet processor. 10GbE fabrics and switches are not required, which reduces system complexity and board count. Alternatively, the platform can be used with high-speed SRIO links in point-to-point configurations between adjacent AMCs.

If Ethernet connectivity is not needed, costs can be reduced by using a MicroTCA Carrier Management Controller module (MCMC-module) on the backplane. The AMC bays are fully compliant with the AMC standards and the MicroTCA standard, so any standards-compliant AMC may be used. Customer specific backplanes for OEM series production are available on request.
