1U MTCA chassis boasts six AMC slots

Integrated systems and embedded board specialist, VadaTech, has introduced the VT954, a rugged 1U chassis used in mil/aero or other applications that need to withstand shock or vibration. The lightweight aluminium chassis construction provides six, single module, mid-size AMC slots. For front panel retention, there is a single MicroTCA.1 screw on the opposite side of the ejector handle on each module slot.

The chassis offers dual redundant power supply units, hot-swappable from the rear of the chassis. The VT954 is designed to meet vibration specification MIL-STD-167-1A (Type 1) and shock Class I, as defined by MIL-S-901D.

The chassis is equipped with provisions for rails for rackmount environments. The front-to-rear cooling of the chassis uses the VadaTech third generation MCH (UTC004 product) for its shelf manager, crossbar clocking for low jitter, GPS/IEEE1588/SyncE/NTP. The VT954 has dual 10/40GbE as well as dual GbE to each slot. There are also dual QSFP+ to the front panel.

The VT954 backplane provides direct connection between adjacent AMC slots on ports two to three and on ports 12 to 20.
