Mercury Computer Systems, a provider of embedded computing services, has announced the availability of the Ensemble MCH2020 MicroTCA Carrier Hub and a 12-slot MicroTCA chassis system components that can be combined with a current AdvancedMC mezzanine cards to create small form factor services.
According to the company, the new Ensemble MCH2020 MicroTCA Carrier Hub provides the control and switching infrastructure for MicroTCA system configurations, with single-module support for three system fabrics: a gigabit ethernet base interface, a RapidIO switch fabric, and an intelligent platform management interface.
The MCH2020 is the third-generation RapidIO switching module within the Ensemble product family, and it can be readily configured with any combination of Ensemble processing AMCs to create a high-performance, real-time system.
Mark Aslett, president and CEO of Mercury Computer Systems, said: Customers in telecommunications and semiconductor manufacturing need to support very high data rates with consistent, low-latency processing power. Our Ensemble ATCA systems do that by combining the RapidIO switch fabric with a broad choice of processing elements. Now customers can use the same system architecture in a MicroTCA solution and achieve impressive levels of performance in a smaller, cost-effective form factor.
