Elma Electronic Unveils Extender Card for MicroTCA, AMC

Elma Electronic Inc., a global manufacturer of electronic packaging products, has announced an extender board for MicroTCA and AMC-based systems. The module extends the signals out of the card cage area so that an Advanced Mezzanine Card (AMC) can be tested or debugged.

The AMC extender card is a passive extender module, supporting all fabric connectors as defined in the AMC.x and MicroTCA specifications. The board complies with the MicroTCA.0, AMC.1 R1.0, AMC.2 D0.96A specifications and plugs into an AMC slot like a regular AMC module. Management and payload power can be individually switch isolated.

The module extends all fabric signals and 3 clock lines, and features virtually zero power consumption. Elma has also released an AMC Load Board and offers a full line of MicroTCA and AdvancedTCA backplanes, chassis, and components.
