Keywords:MicroTCA  RapidIO  chassis 


Mercury Computer Systems, Inc. has announced the new Ensemble MCH2020 MicroTCA Carrier Hub, which provides the control and switching infrastructure for MicroTCA system configurations.

Included is single-module support for three system fabrics: a Gigabit Ethernet base interface, a RapidIO switch fabric, and an intelligent platform management interface (IPMI).

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.

Robust system configurations can be built on the Ensemble MicroTCA Application Platform, a 4U, 19-inch rack-mountable MicroTCA chassis with 12 AMC slots and two switch/hub slots.

This chassis supports high-bandwidth backplane communications with a dual-star RapidIO topology. Application developers can use this platform to combine extreme processing density with low-latency, deterministic communications.
