VadaTech Offers Hybrid 2U MicroTCA Chassis Platform with Rear Transition Slots

The VT812 2U Chassis Platforms features 4 mid-size MTCA.0 and 4 mid-size MTCA.4 slots

Henderson, NV. VadaTech, a manufacturer of embedded boards and complete application-ready platforms, has announced a 2U Hybrid Chassis that provides MicroTCA.4 compliant slots along with MicroTCA.0 standard slots. The result is a powerful mix of configuration possibilities, including the use of rear I/O modules.

The VT812 2U Chassis Platforms features 4 mid-size MTCA.0 and 4 mid-size MTCA.4 slots including corresponding MicroRTMs (Rear Transition Modules for MicroTCA). The MicroTCA.4 architecture is designed primarily for high energy physics applications, but is an excellent fit for many Mil/Aero, Broadcast, and Networking applications. The chassis offers dual MicroTCA Carrier Hubs (MCHs), dual redundant power supplies, a JTAG Switch Module (JSM) and a Telco Alarm.

As part of the MicroTCA specification, the MCH provides the ability for redundancy and failover with hot swappability throughout the system. The backplane can route multiple fabrics, including PCIe (up to Gen 3) and 40/10 GbE, along with SAS/SATA ports.

VadaTech provides the full ecosystem of MicroTCA products, including AMCs, chassis platforms, MCHs, and power modules. The company also offers several MicroTCA.4 compliant products.
