Ensemble 12-Slot MicroTCA Chassis

Product Description

The Ensemble 12-Slot MicroTCA Chassis is a 4U, 19-inch rack-mountable unit with 12 AMC slots and two switch/hub slots, which provides a versatile, cost-effective architecture for a variety of MicroTCA applications. It supports high-bandwidth backplane communications with a dual-star RapidIO® topology interconnecting all AMC slots. These communications are supported by the Ensemble MCH2022Z MicroTCA Carrier Hub and Switch, which provides single module support for a Gigabit Ethernet base interface and an IPMI, as well as the RapidIO switch fabric.
The chassis delivers active front-to-rear cooling via two independent cooling units, each with a 12-VDC high-speed fan and a module management controller, ensuring proper airflow to cool each AMC.
