Kontron has announced today that the Kontron MicroTCA Carrier Hubs (MCH) AM4904/AM4910 have been upgraded to include support of the MTCA.4 specification. Offering the MicroTCA enhancements for rear I/O and precision timing, the MCHs are ideally aligned with the requirements of high-speed data acquisition and processing applications.
Target segments include physical research centres and many other high-bandwidth applications that require increased serviceability packed into a compact form-factor and feature high levels of performance, bandwidth and availability. By supporting four different high-speed fabric variants, including GbE, sRIO, PCIe and 10 GbE, the new Kontron MicroTCA Carrier Hubs build the backbone of practically all data-intensive MicroTCA-based high-performance applications.
Besides deployment in physics applications, other typical scenarios can be found in telecom markets, including 3G, LTE and network test equipment, and non-telecom markets such as military, medical, test and measurement, as well as in image and video processing applications.
