N.A.T. Announces New 2U MicroTCA.4.1 Chassis for Telecom, Industrial and High Energy Physics Research Applications

N.A.T., a leading supplier of embedded boards and systems based on open
standards, today announced the NATIVE-R2, a powerful new 2U MicroTCA
(MTCA.4.1) chassis that is particularly suited to telecommunications,
industrial and particle physics research applications. Supporting a single
MCH and power unit, the NATIVE-R2 can accommodate six horizontally-mounted
AdvancedMC® (AMCs) modules (five mid-size and one full-size), up to five
MicroRTMs and a JTAG switch module (JSM).

The NATIVE-R2 enables developers to build a compact, multi-purpose computing
system for a variety of applications by integrating cost-effective AMCs. The
compact design and support for PCIe Gen3 x8 makes the NATIVE-R2 ideal for
applications with high connectivity requirements, such as high energy physics
and telecom edge, access and aggregation equipment. Optional support for
White Rabbit, an Ethernet extension protocol for precision timing of network
nodes, provides sub-nanosecond accuracy synchronization, particularly useful
for the high energy physics community.

The MCH is the heart of a MicroTCA system and the NAT-MCH-PHYS80 offers 80
PCI Express lane switch configurable PCI Express port width of 1, 4, 8 or 16
lanes, a 16-lane PCI Express connection to rear MCH-RTM and one 16-lane
optical PCI Express connection to the front panel. The NAT-MCH-PHYS80 can be
integrated with the NAT-MCH-RTM-COMex-E3, N.A.T.’s quad core Intel® Xeon® E3
processor module, to create the most powerful single-slot solution for
management, switching and processing that is available for MTCA.4.
