N.A.T.: 2U MicroTCA.4.1 chassis for telecom, industrial and high energy physics research applications

N.A.T. announced the NATIVE-R2, a powerful new 2U MicroTCA (MTCA.4.1) chassis that is particularly suited to telecommunications, industrial and particle physics research applications. Supporting a single MCH and power unit, the NATIVE-R2 can accommodate six horizontally-mounted AdvancedMC (AMCs) modules (five mid-size and one full-size), up to five MicroRTMs and a JTAG switch module (JSM).

The NATIVE-R2 enables developers to build a compact, multi-purpose computing system for a variety of applications by integrating cost-effective AMCs. The compact design and support for PCIe Gen3 x8 makes the NATIVE-R2 ideal for applications with high connectivity requirements, such as high energy physics and telecom edge, access and aggregation equipment. Optional support for White Rabbit, an Ethernet extension protocol for precision timing of network nodes, provides sub-nanosecond accuracy synchronization, particularly useful for the high energy physics community.

The MCH is the heart of a MicroTCA system and the NAT-MCH-PHYS80 offers 80 PCI Express lane switch configurable PCI Express port width of 1, 4, 8 or 16 lanes, a 16-lane PCI Express connection to rear MCH-RTM and one 16-lane optical PCI Express connection to the front panel. The NAT-MCH-PHYS80 can be integrated with the NAT-MCH-RTM-COMex-E3, N.A.T.’s quad core Intel Xeon E3 processor module, to create the most powerful single-slot solution for management, switching and processing that is available for MTCA.4.
