About AdvancedTCA  

AdvancedTCA is a high-performance architecture used in many Mil/Aero, Communications, and Physics/Research applications.  The larger board size (8U x 280mm), high-speed backplanes (40GbE is standard with 100GbE in draft), and cooling focus make the architecture a favorite for very high bandwidth requirements.

  • System availability of at least 99.999%
  • Hot-swap capability ensures uninterrupted operation
  • Transmission rates of up to 2.5 Tbit/s
  • Large board formats: 8U x 280 mm
  • Switched fabric architecture:  Full Mesh and Dual Star
  • Cooling solutions up to 400W per board
  • Support of different protocols (Ethernet, Infiniband, Rapid I/O, PCI-Express)
  • Defined performance up to 40GbE-KR
