Carlsbad, CA April 13, 2009 – JumpGen Systems today announces the PSA-100, an AdvancedTCA® (ATCA) Carrier/Hub blade featuring the Fujitsu MB86C69RBC 26 port 10GbE switch IC together with an Intel® EP80579 Integrated Processor with Intel® QuickAssist Technology and up to 4GB of ECC DDR2 memory for switch management and/or control plane functions. The PSA-100 supports 3 mid-size B+ AMC bays each with two 10GBase-KX4 Fat Pipe and two 1000Base-KX Base interfaces. The Fujitsu switch connects the three AMC sites to the ATCA backplane fabric and base channels. The PSA-110 may be deployed with 600 MHz, 1.066 GHz, or 1.2 GHz processors, with or without QuickAssist Technology. The PSA-100 may also serve as an ATCA Hub in systems up to 7 slots (such as a 5U ATCA Chassis).

“The PSA-100 is our first ATCA Carrier/Hub board and provides an effective carrier for our high performance XAUI Fabric AMC products as well as a cost effective switch for 5U or 6U ATCA Systems. The switch and processor are both very power and performance efficient allowing the Carrier to support multiple high powered AMCs.” said Harry White, JumpGen Systems President.

“We are pleased to see new ATCA carrier boards taking advantage of the latest technology to offer higher levels of integration at lower price points.” noted Lance Leventhal, Technology Editor, ATCA Newsletter.
