New Data Processing Board Offered By VadaTech Features High Performance and Low Latency
VadaTech now offers a new data processor that meets the MicroTCA.4 specification with a rear I/O interface. The board is ideal for several High Energy Physics applications such as cavity field stabilization and standing-wave linear accelerators, as well as other systems requiring high speeds DSPs and low latency.
VadaTech quadruples transfer rate of AMC storage modules
VadaTech has upgraded its line of AMC Storage Modules with higher transfer rate, RAID and Host Bus Adapter options. The first in the line of upgraded storage AMCs is the AMC626. The module meets the AMC.1 specifications for use in MicroTCA and AdvancedTCA systems. It comes in the single module, mid-size and holds a 2.5 inch drive for SATA III at a 6 Gbps transfer rate or SAS-3 for a 12 Gbps transfer rate.
AdvancedTCA carrier board holds four AMCs
VadaTech has announced an AdvancedTCA (ATCA) carrier board that holds four Advanced Mezzanine Cards (AMCs). Designated the ATC133, this 10GbE Carrier features a 10G managed Layer 2 switch with a Xilinx Virtex-7 FPGA and a Crossbar Switch (CBS) which allows any combination of backplane ports to be routed to the FPGA.
Shelf manager delivers 10x improvement over previous version
The VT003 shelf manager is the next generation of VadaTech's mezzanine-based shelf manager used in ATCA, MicroTCA, and other applications. The shelf manager provides a quad-core 1GHz per core processor, a 10x improvement over its previous version.
MicroTCA architecture chosen for NASA's terminal upgrading
The MicroTCA (μTCA) architecture, from VadaTech, has been chosen for the majority of NASA's ground terminal upgrading. Nasa is pgrading its ground terminals to modernize the communications infrastructure and provide new capabilities for their customers.
8U chassis solves power redundancy problem
Introduced by Vadatech, the VT813 is an 8U chassis that is compliant with the MicroTCA.4 specification that offers N+1 redundant power to 4400W. MicroTCA.4 systems utilise double modules with an RTM connector for rear I/O. By adding RTM and higher power large modules, the overall power requirement in chassis are higher.
FPGA Mezzanine Carriers are based on Xilinx FPGAs
Based on Xilinx All Programmable FPGAs, VadaTech announces a full suite of Advanced Mezzanine Card (AMC) modules. These single-width AMCs are available in versions that include Virtex-5, Virtex-6, Artix-7, Kintex-7 and Virtex-7 FPGAs, as well as Zynq All Programmable SoCs, from Xilinx.
6U ATCA shelf with switch cards and shelf managers
VadaTech has today introduced a new 6U ATCA shelf with integrated boards that combine the functionality of switch cards and shelf managers. In a typical Dual Star ATCA chassis, two slots are dedicated for the switches. With VadaTech’s VT830 6-slot ATCA shelf, the Switching Shelf Managers are below the card cage, this frees up those slots to be used as payload slots, providing six slots instead of the usual four.
MicroTCA Advanced Mezzanine Card carrier for a FPGA Mezzanine Card
Vadatech has today announced a new Advanced Mezzanine Card carrier for a FPGA Mezzanine Card per VITA-57. The design allows users to utilize the popular FMCs within the AMC format of the MicroTCA architecture. Compliant to AMC.1, AMC.2, and AMC.4, the Vadatech AMC515 Carrier for FMC features a Virtex-7 chip in a 1925 package.
VadaTech Supplies MicroTCA Cloud Computing Platform
VadaTech has started shipping a novel chassis designed specifically for application server platforms. As well as meeting the cost and reliability requirements of cloud computing, the chassis is carefully engineered for thermal performance.
