Elma Bustronic's ATCA backplane

Elma Bustronic Corp. offers a 14-slot Full Mesh AdvancedTCA (ATCA) backplane with full pluggability.

The 14-slot ATCA backplane features an 18-layer stripline design with pluggable fan tray, shelf manager and power entry connectors. Compliant to the PICMG 3.0 specification, the 14-slot ATCA has a theoretical performance of 1Tbps.

Dual Star or Mesh configurations can be used within this same backplane to offer greater design flexibility. The ATCA backplane offers several key features including Gigabyte/Terabyte per second bandwidth across each shelf, 150W to 200W per board and 3kW per chassis power. It accommodates larger (8U x 280mm) boards on a 1.2mm pitch for larger/taller components and more board space.

Pricing for the 14-slot ATCA backplane is less than $2,000, depending on configuration and volume. Delivery is four to six weeks.
