Robust Platforms Are for Multi-Core Processing
The modular 19-inch 6U MicroTCA platforms are redundant and specifically designed in compliance with the MTCA.1 specification for applications with the highest demands for robustness, availability, and performance.
The Kontron MicroTCA platforms OM6090D and OM7090D are based on the same compact chassis (266 x 428 x 365 mm), which is equipped with four rear-mounted extraction fans. Both MTCA.1 compliant platforms provide nine double-width slots for AdvancedMC modules and two slots for redundant MicroTCA Carrier Hub (MCH) configurations (up to 80 Watts). The Kontron OM6090D supports up to three pluggable AC-PSUs offering load balancing. For redundant power management, the Kontron OM7090D can be configured with two (one active + one standby) or three (two active + one standby) power management modules.
Equipped with Kontron AdvancedMC modules, OEM customers are able to obtain pre-validated application-ready platforms from Kontron at any time and all from a single source, which drastically reduces their time to market. Dedicated modules for the platforms are the Kontron MicroTCA Carrier Hub AM4910, which supports 10 GbE Ethernet switching and CPU modules, such as the Kontron AdvancedMC processor module AM5030 (Intel Xeon processor LC5518) or the Kontron AdvancedMC processor module AM5010 (Intel Core2 Duo). The AMC slots can also accommodate Kontron’s AdvancedMC storage module AM5500, a MTCA.1 module with up to one terabyte storage capacity that can also be fitted with extremely robust solid state drives (SSD) as an alternative to two 2.5 in. SATA HDDs. The module is ideal for applications that demand a high resistance to shock and vibration. This allows the Kontron OM6090D and OM7090D to be configured as extremely robust storage systems with a capacity of up to nine terabytes. Further customer-specific AdvancedMC implementations can be made on demand using the 10 GbE, 1 GbE, PCIe x4, and SATA supporting backplane.
