AMC (AdvancedMC) is the PCI Industrial Computer Manufacturers Group's specification (PICMG AMC.0 , AMC.1, AMC.2, AMC.3 and AMC.4 respectively) for hot-swappable and field-replaceable mezzanine cards. For designers looking for the ultimate computing power in a small form factor, Advanced Mezzanine Cards (AMCs) has already established itself on the market as a versatile and powerful embedded product. For use in both ATCA and MicroTCA Systems , AdvancedMCs offer serial interfaces and support different transport systems such as, PCIExpress, Gigabit Ethernet, 10 Gigabit Ethernet, Serial Rapid I/0 and SAS (Serial Attached SCSI)/SATA (Serial ATA). AdvancedMC modules are the key for building MicroTCA platforms, to extend the value of AdvancedTCA platforms and to enable proprietary platforms with the necessary functionality.
Kontron Processor AMCs are compliant with PICMG's AMC.x specifications, and can achieve extremely high performance and data throughput in a very small form factor.
Kontron provides a variety of I/O modules plus three generations of Cavium-based packet processor AMCs.
SAS and SATA based mass storage modules
The MCH is the central management and data switching device in a MicroTCA system. Kontron offers MCHs integrated in open platforms according the MicroTCA specification.
Kontron's MicroTCA open modular platforms are available in different form factors and are reliable, scalable and always the best configuration.
