Elma Electronic Inc. in Fremont, Calif., is offering its 1U MicroBox is now offered as an integrated solution. The 19-inch rackmount MicroBox features as many as 10 modules (mid-size, single width), which includes 6 AMCs, a Power Module (PM), and a J-TAG Switch Module (JSM) from MicroBlade, and 1 MicroTCA Carrier Hub (MCH). The redundant Star signaling and redundant cooling modules provide extra reliability. This integrated system offers high bandwidth, flexibility, and monitoring in the 45-by-465-by-210-millimeter size. Elma can also offer the MicroBox as a stand-alone chassis in various module sizes. Cooling is achieved in a dual redundant push/pull configuration. Thermal studies show that it dissipates 35 watts per module (mid-size, single width) and has 8 (2 x 4) fans providing 20 cubic feet per second each at 1.5 inches of water. The JSM is a unique testing and diagnostics module that provides remote programming and uploads. The Power Module generates less heat, an important consideration for a densely packaged system. It features individual-channel control, monitoring and shutdown for each AMC. The hot-swap pluggable fan trays and filters are separately removable and managed. The fans also feature 100 KHz multiphase Pulse Width Modulation (PWM) with individual speed control. For more information, visit Elma online at www.elma.com.
