Adlink Technology Inc. takes the wrap off aTCA-6900, the first AdvancedTCA (ATCA) CPU blade in the industry featuring the latest Intel 5100 chipset, two quad-core Intel Xeon processors and two PICMG standard AMC bays for extreme computing performance and versatile high speed I/O expansion, claims the company. With the Intel 5100 chipset supporting up to 32GByte DDR2-667 RDIMM memory, dual 10GbE links enabling high speed board-to-board data transfer rates up to 20Gps, and an optional onboard 24-port GbE switch-on-chip, the aTCA-6900 is suitable for a variety of carrier-grade applications, including wireless infrastructure as well as media servers in IPTV and IP Multimedia Subsystem (IMS) broadband networks, says Adlink. The aTCA-6900 provides telecom equipment manufacturers and network equipment providers with a powerful, cost-effective solution that balances multicore computing power, high memory capacity, 10Gbit connectivity and I/O options.

In addition to multicore computing power, the aTCA-6900 brings RAID 0/1/5 enabled SAS/SATA storage device support via AMC bays and rear transition module (RTM) for mission critical applications, and a Fabric Interface riser site to support different PICMG 3.x fabric options, such as PICMG 3.1 10GbE links, PICMG 3.1 FC/GbE links or PICMG 3.4 PCIe lanes. The two mid-size AMC bays support AMC.1 PCIe, AMC.2 GbE and AMC.3 SATA/SAS storage for IO expansion. With its comprehensive feature set, the aTCA-6900 offers high density computing power and data throughput performance, as well as providing flexible I/O and storage options.
