A 14-slot Dual Star MicroTCA backplane from Elma Bustronic Corp. features 10 AMC slots, a dual redundant power module and MicroTCA controller hub (MCH) slots.

The 14-slot Dual Star backplane complies with the latest MicroTCA.0 specifications. The connectors are compression mount, and can be easily removed from the backplane individually if damaged. The company is also developing MicroTCA backplane configurations in press-fit and SMT styles.

The MicroTCA backplane features an 18-layer controlled-impedance stripline design. There are also eight right-angle 10-pin SMD headers for fans. The company also offers a 6-slot Dual Star for a portable tower chassis and a 14-slot Star design with one power module and MCH slot. Pricing for the 14-slot MicroTCA backplane is less than $1,500 depending on volume and configuration requirements. Delivery is four to six weeks.
