MicroTCA System Platforms

Compatible Operating Systems: Linux, Windows
Specification Compliance: PICMG MTCA.0, MTCA.4

Elma’s MicroTCA solutions range from scalable, full featured systems to rugged configurations ready for outdoor or harsh environment deployment. By optimizing solutions to meet application-specific needs, Elma has developed a family of chassis platforms that meet the expectations of telecom, rail, and physics labs.

Because of their serial switched point-to-point connections and high data transfer rates, MicroTCA combines scalable, dense computing power with optimized cooling. In addition, integrated management capabilities are the hardware and high modularity. The technology has benefited from its origins in the telecommunications sector.

More recently, PICMG released the latest MTCA standard, the .4 extensions for the Physics community. It offers unique features that bring the high data transfer rates to accelerators and other experimental lab applications. The key feature that differentiates it from the base MicroTCA standard is its ability to accept rear I/O via pluggable rear transition modules (RTMs).

Elma offers an entire family of system platforms compliant to MTCA.0. The company recently added two MTCA platforms, 6-slots and 12-slots.
