PDSi’s Dual AMD Opteron™ ATCA® Blade with RTM Interface (ATCA-F1) is a military-proven, high-performance general purpose server platform for AdvancedTCA® systems. Architected around AMD Opteron processors with HyperTransport™ technology, it features two CPU sockets that can be populated with the latest AMD 2419 EE “Istanbul” 1.8GHz six-core processors, for a total of twelve-cores. PDSi’s ATCA-F1 blade supports up to 32GB of 667MHz memory.

This third generation blade features a Zone 3 interface for connection to PDSi’s ATCA-RT01 rear transition module (RTM), which adds SAS or SSD storage, video, and USB resources. Other on-blade features include a Compact Flash site and an AdvancedMC™slot for additional I/O or further storage expansion. See PDSi’s AMC-E24D module for an excellent space-saving AMC combining SATA storage and dual hi-res video.

PDSi gives telecom, aerospace, and military OEMs and integrators the ability to deploy configurable, scalable, high-reliability twelve-core ATCA solutions using this powerful compute blade based on AMD’s Istanbul and Shanghai processor technologies. Extended availability from PDSi is assured as key components are supported by embedded roadmaps. PDSi can also provide customization, ruggedization, turnkey integration and support of ATCA systems, as well as extended warranty and repair services.
