MicroTCA has some powerful and compelling features, especially in the realm of system management. The more advanced the features are, the most complex the process can become. This is one of the reasons why the Interoperability Workshops (IWs) are so important. One of the key benefits of MicroTCA is that the ecosystem’s interoperability was built [...]
Storage is one of those system elements where demands con-tinue to rise whatever the application. Whether it’s the massive data gathered from electronic surveillance in military and homeland security, or a data log and history record for networking and research applications, the need to have modular and scalable storage is paramount. Advanced Mezza-nine Cards (AMCs) have typically provided a solid solution for most applications. Now AMC-based systems like MicroTCA (µTCA) and AdvancedTCA (ATCA) can have storage options that are even more compelling.
