VadaTech offers two compact MTCA.4 chassis options
Integrated systems and embedded board manufacturer, VadaTech, announces the VT817 and VT819 chassis, for MTCA.4.
The VT817 is a low-cost MicroTCA.4 PCIe Gen3 expansion chassis, which provides a flexible and effective method of incorporating MTCA.4 acquisition and control hardware into a PC processing environment. The shelf offers two AMC slots and an integrated MicroTCA Carrier Hub (MCH). The front panel ports accept PCIe Gen3 inputs from VadaTech’s PCI123 PCIe Gen3 board. Used with the PCI123, the VT817 can link x16 PCIe Gen3 to an industrial PC.
There are options for single PCIe input x16, dual PCIe inputs using x8 links or quad PCIe inputs using x4 links, supporting single-, dual- or quad-chassis expansion configurations, says VadaTech.
The VT819 is suitable for the MTCA.4 development platform. It is competitively priced, says VadaTech and offers two AMC slots and an integrated MCH. The double module AMCs meet the MTCA.4 specification for applications that require rear I/O and signal conditioning.
The AC power is located in the rear of the chassis and is removable. The AMCs connect directly over fabric (ports four to 11) and extended options region (ports 12 to 15 and 17 to 20) so supporting PCIe, XAUI, SRIO or very low latency protocols such as Aurora.
VadaTech provides embedded computing solutions from board-level products, chassis-level platforms, to configurable application-ready systems. The company has a focus on AdvancedTCA, MicroTCA, VPX and PCIe solutions, and combines electrical, mechanical, software, and system-level expertise to enable VadaTech to provide customised commercial or rugged computing to meet the most complex customer requirements. VadaTech also offers specialised products for VME, CompactPCI, and other architectures.
