UTC040C MicroTCA carrier hub includes PCIe Gen3 switch

Integrated systems and embedded board supplier, VadaTech, offers the UTC040C conduction cooled MicroTCA carrier hub (MCH). It includes PCIe Gen3 switch with 1024Gbits/s aggregate bandwidth, automatic speed negotiation, and virtual switch (multiple domain, non-transparent port support) to enable partitioning of the system with multiple root complexes.

Base interface Ethernet is via a managed layer two/three Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) switch with 12 ports 10/100/1000-BaseT interface via the front panel. The same field-proven standards-compliant intelligent platform management interface (IPMI) management stack is used that has been deployed over generations of MCH products, reassures VadaTech.

The UTC040C can be used to configure arbitrary Joint Test Action Group (JTAG) slave devices on advanced mezzanine cards (AMCs). Virtual Probe services are also available to provide JTAG via Ethernet for standard development tools to treat the MCH/JTAG switch module (JSM) combination as if it was a standard JTAG probe. This approach frees the developer from having to attach JTAG probes directly to individual modules which can be difficult when systems are already fully assembled. It also allows for remote debugging without the need to install additional JTAG equipment on-site, adds VadaTech.

MicroTCA provides a powerful and flexible alternative to VPX for cost-sensitive and size, weight and power (SWAP) -constrained applications. VadaTech offers processors, data acquisition and storage in rugged conduction-cooled format, backed up by a range of air transport rack (ATR) and custom chassis for deployable network-centric sensor processing applications.

VadaTech provides embedded computing, from board-level products, chassis-level platforms, to configurable application-ready systems. The company focuses on AdvancedTCA, MicroTCA, VPX and PCIe solutions, offering electrical, mechanical, software, and system-level expertise to provide customised commercial or rugged computing to meet the most complex customer requirements. VadaTech also offers specialised products for VME, CompactPCI, and other architectures. A member of PICMG and VITA, VadaTech has headquarters, design and manufacturing facilities in Henderson, NV with design, support and sales offices in Europe and Asia Pacific.
