HENDERSON, Nev. – VadaTech Inc. in Henderson, Nev., is introducing the UTC040C conduction-cooled MicroTCA Carrier Hub (MCH) for cost-sensitive and SWaP-constrained aerospace and defense embedded computing applications.

The UTC040C includes PCI Express Gen3 switch with 1024 gigabits per second aggregate bandwidth, automatic speed negotiation, and virtual switch to enable partitioning of the system with root complexes.

Base interface Ethernet is via a managed layer two/three Gigabit Ethernet switch with 12 ports 10/100/1000-BaseT interface via the front panel.

The UTC040C can configure arbitrary JTAG slave devices on AMC cards. Virtual Probe services also are available to provide JTAG via Ethernet for standard development tools to treat the MCH/JSM combination as if it was a standard JTAG probe.

This approach frees the developer from having to attach JTAG probes directly to individual modules which can be difficult when systems are already assembled. It also allows for remote debugging without the need to install additional JTAG equipment on-site.

MicroTCA provides a powerful and flexible alternative to VPX for cost-sensitive and SWaP-constrained applications, company officials say. For more information contact VadaTech online at www.vadatech.com.
