NATIVE-R2

NATIVE-R2 Chassis

2U MTCA.4 chassis - up to 6 AMCs, support for PCIe Gen3 x8

 

The NATIVE-R2 is a 2U MTCA.4 chassis particularly suited to telecommunications, industrial and particle physics research applications.

Supporting a single MCH and one power unit, the NATIVE-R2 can accommodate

  • six horizontally-mounted AMC modules (five mid-size and one full-size),
  • up to five MicroRTMs (uRTM), and
  • one JTAG switch module (JSM).

This enables you 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.

The NATIVE-R2 is a member of the NATIVE family of MicroTCA chassis which consists of:
