PDSi’s Video + Storage ATCA Rear Transition Module (ATCA-RT01) provides high reliability SAS storage, VGA video output and additional I/O functionality for AdvancedTCA systems using x86 processor blades from PDSi or Oracle. In addition, it also operates with Oracle’s UltraSPARC® T2-based Netra™ CP3260 blade. For systems requiring a mix of these compute blades, the ATCA-RT01 can provide a “universal RTM” solution.

The ATCA-RT01 complies with PICMG ATCA 3.0 specifi¬cations for seamless and dependable operation in critical applications. It features a 2.5 inch SAS HDD for local storage as well as front-panel access to the onboard SAS controller for connection to secondary or redun¬dant storage arrays. Additional ports include VGA video output and USB I/O for convenient local monitoring or configuration of applications. Serial and Ethernet ports are also routed from the front blade so that all required I/O can be rear-accessible. The RTM includes Pigeon Point’s module management.

Telecom, aerospace, and military OEMs will appreciate the flexibility this advanced RTM brings to their systems. Extended availability from PDSi is assured. PDSi can also provide customization, turnkey integration and sup¬port of ATCA systems, as well as extended warranty and repair services.
