New 6-Slot, front to back cooled, 40G AdvancedTCA Chassis from Asis


Asis-Pro, a global designer and manufacturer of complete enclosure systems for ATCA, CompactPCI and custom applications, has announced the release of the new 6 Slot AdvancedTCA front to back cooled chassis. This product was designed to fill the void in the market for a high performance, medium-sized, front-to-back cooled chassis. It was designed with Tier 1 carrier-grade applications in mind. 

This beautifully designed 40G ATCA chassis is an exciting new addition to the Asis ATCA line of products, it is 8U high and fits in a 19” rack. The state-of-the-art design features an integral AC and DC option; dual redundant, hot-swappable PEMs or up to four 1600W smart IPMI power supplies. The chassis can be fitted with up to two newly-designed shelf managers based on Pigeon Point Sentry 500. It has a staggering power distribution of 450W per slot. The cooling scheme uses eight powerful fans that give an unsurpassed 65 CFM per slot, designed for the ever-demanding, power hungry next generation of CPU and switch blades. 

This 6 slot shelf has, like all other Asis shelves, a Nelco PCB backplane which is the highest performing and highest quality PCB material used in the ATCA market today. It has a triple replicated mesh architecture, i.e. three 40G channels between each slot. The backplane also has precision back-drilling for optimal performance at 40Gbps. The Base interface is Dual star and supports 10/100/1000 BASE-T Ethernet. 

There is already a lot of buzz and anticipation surrounding this new product which will be launched at this years’ ATCA 2012 Summit on September 18-19 in Santa Clara, California. Many customers have already started showing a lot of interest.  Asis offers a wide range of ATCA shelves. The side to side family includes 3U and 6U versions, and the front-to-back family now includes 8U, 13U, 14U and 15U versions, all available in both AC and DC configurations. Our chassis have been upgraded to highperformance 300+W cooling per slot, and we possess the ability and expertise to customize each of the products per specific requests.

The standard lead time of all our products is 4-6 weeks.
