ADLINK Offers AdvancedTCA Building Blocks

ADLINK Technology offers a complete line of full-featured AdvancedTCA building blocks for use in high-performance applications. ADLINK provides four distinct functionalities – processor blades, hub switch blades, control modules, and chassis – in various versions to help build AdvancedTCA platforms and get products to market quickly.

ADLINK is your full-service partner to build AdvancedTCA products utilizing its many options to best fit your application. Our capable engineers will evaluate your project and advise on how to best approach building an AdvancedTCA platform. We also offer pre- and post-sales support.

ADLINK’s AdvancedTCA portfolio features two processor blades, three switch blades, two control modules and a rackmount chassis. The processor blades are available in either a dual processor configuration with the Low Voltage Intel(R) Xeon(R) processor 2.8GHz and 800MHz system bus or a single processor configuration with the Intel(R) Xeon(R) processor 3.2GHz and 800MHz system bus. The AdvancedTCA hub switch boards support the PICMG 3.1 Ethernet backplane interconnect, offer 24 Ethernet ports and support chassis of up to 14 slots. The AdvancedTCA chassis management modules are PICMG 3.0 compliant and provide highly reliable hardware management of blades and subcomponents. The rackmount chassis is a 5U five-slot AdvancedTCA rackmount system that supports full mesh topology fabric interface and standard Rear Transition Module slots. AdvancedTCA platforms are targeted for mission critical applications that require high functionality, reliability and manageability.
