Redefining Power Architecture for CompactPCI Platforms

Over the past five years, CompactPCI has gained tremendous acceptance as the architecture of choice for Telecom Equipment Manufacturers (TEMs) building systems for the telco environment. Its powerful, cost-effective computing solutions, as well as hot-swap and high availability capabilities make it ideal for telecom and Internet applications. Until recently, however, CompactPCI has fallen short of meeting all the redundancy requirements demanded by the central office environment. The key to meeting these requirements is the power architecture of the system.

Further still, new applications in the Telecom environment require increasing compute power per blade. This translates to compute boards with dual processors and/or increased MHz and memory per blade. As the performance increases, the power and cooling requirements must also increase.
