The MTC5070 from Performance Technologies (Rochester, NY) is a highly integrated 1U MicroTCA™- compliant platform that can support up to six mid-size, single AdvancedMC™ (AMC) modules. The fully deployable MicroTCA platform meets the needs for high-performance, cost-effective, and modular processing in low-profile, appliance-style applications. PCI-Express® and Ethernet switching are supported to each slot. Storage is accommodated by direct SATA/SAS slot-to-slot connections between the AMC sites and the onboard platform management subsystem provides MicroTCA compliant carrier and shelf management.

The MTC5070, AdvancedMC modules, and NexusWare® enabling software offer an optimized application-ready foundation for telecom, wireless, aerospace and defense, and commercial applications. The platform features front-to-back cooling, which is critical for NEBS installations, with both push and pull fans to cool up to 40W per mid-size single slot. AC input or DC input options are available with a removable 300 W power supply. The front I/O panel features LEDs, a reset switch, and a platform management console port. The rear panel has dual 10/100/1000 Mb Ethernet uplink ports, a 10/100 Mb Ethernet out-of-band platform management port, power input, and a power switch. For Free Info Click Here
