ECHING, Germany, 19 May 2010. Kontron in Eching, Germany, is introducing the OM6090D and OM7090D MicroTCAembedded computer boxes for military, medical, mobile telephony, and public safety engineering. These rugged computer systems are for high-end AdvancedMC boards and have a 10-Gigabit Ethernet switched backplane. In their maximum configuration, both systems can be fitted with as many as 36 Intel XEON embedded computing processor cores and 216 gigabytes of RAM.
The modular 19-inch 6U MicroTCA platforms are redundant and designed in compliance with the MTCA.1 specification for applications with demands for robustness, availability, and performance. Typical end-point applications include network in a box or rural utilities service (RUS) for rural and remote communication systems supporting CDMA, GSM, 3G, and VoIP across HLR/HSS, RNC, and gateway applications.
The Kontron platforms also are for rapidly deployable mobile networks, radar, sonar, and video data processing. These applications will benefit from the densely packed computing power of hot-swappable AdvancedMC modules and board-to-board dual-star switching beyond 1 gigabit per second.
The Kontron MicroTCA platforms OM6090D and OM7090D are based on the same 266-by-428-by-365-millimeter chassis, which is equipped with four rear-mounted extraction fans. The platforms provide nine double-width slots for AdvancedMC modules and two slots for redundant MicroTCA carrier hub (MCH) configurations (as much as 80 Watts).
The Kontron OM6090D supports as many as three pluggable AC-PSUs offering load balancing. For redundant power management, the Kontron OM7090D can be configured with two (one active + one standby) or three (two active + one standby) power management modules.
