Elma Bustronic Corp. has introduced a 6-slot AdvancedTCA backplane in a Mesh topology. The flexible design also allows a Dual Star topology to be implemented.

The 6-slot ATCA backplane features standard MicroTCA connectors used for connections to Elma's IPM Sentry shelf manager. The small and dense connector minimizes the space used on the backplane. The 6-slot is compact enough to fit within a 5U horizontal ATCA enclosure, along with two shelf manager connectors within the card cage, making it one of the densest ATCA design in the marketplace.

Compliant to the latest PICMG 3.0 specification, the 6-slot ATCA backplane features an 18-layer controlled-impedance stripline design. There are also connectors for SHMC, power entry, Sense, I?C bus, IPMB, ring and fan trays. Bustronic also offers ATCA backplanes in 2-, 5-, and 14-slot Mesh configurations and a 14-slot Dual Star design.
