NATIVE-R9

NATIVE-R9 9U MicroTCA.4 Chassis

Up to 12 AMCs and uRTMs,White Rabbit, JSM Slot

NATIVE-R9 is designed for high availability physics applications where redundancy of all chassis modules is required. NATIVE-R9 offers two redundant, hot-swap, push-pull fan trays to ensure that the front and rear slots are cooled perfectly.

The separate JSM slot frees up an AMC slot, which may otherwise have been required for a JTAG module. Cable trays at the front and rear of the chassis facilitate management of cables. The chassis accepts up to four MTCA.0 compliant power modules at the front and up to two MTCA.4 compliant power modules at the rear when equipped with an optional LLRF backplane.

The backplane features clock and trigger lines as per PICMG MTCA.4, as well as interlocks.
It also provides direct connections for SAS/SATA and lines between the AMCs, as well as supporting White Rabbit for deterministic Ethernet.

Optional LLRF Backplane
NATIVE-R9 can be fitted with the optional NAT-LLRF-Backplane, a Low Latency Radio Frequency (LLRF)  backplane for the distribution of high precision RF and clock signals in embedded computing systems aimed at high energy physics research and other applications.
