ADLINK Technology launched the aTCA-6100 AdvancedTCA (ATCA) processor blade. The aTCA-6100 features two 2.13 GHz quad-core Intel Xeon 5500 series processors, Intel 5520 chipset, up to 48 GB of DDR3 memory, and an optional PICMG Mid-size AMC bay for maximum computing performance and flexibility. On-card connectivity includes dual GbE or 10GbE Fabric Interfaces, dual GbE Base Interfaces, dual front panel GbE interfaces, and quad SAS channels. The aTCA-6100 is ideal for carrier-grade applications, such as media servers in IPTV, IP Multimedia Subsystem (IMS) broadband networks, and wireless infrastructures. The aTCA-6100 is available now for a list price starting a $7,199 with processers and memory.

The ADLINK aTCA-6100 is the first ATCA blade with two quad-core Intel Xeon 5500 series processors and a Mid-size AMC bay. Making use of ADLINK’s advanced thermal solution and the elevated case temperature specification of the Intel Xeon 5500 series processors, the aTCA-6100 is designed to be NEBS (Network Equipment Building System) complaint.
The aTCA-6100 features 4-channel SAS RAID 0/1, 4 GB onboard NAND flash, onboard 2.5″ SATA HDD, and modular Fabric riser card for additional PICMG Fabric Interface protocols. The optional mid-size AMC bay supports AMC.1 PCI-Express, AMC.2 Gigabit Ethernet, and AMC.3 SATA/SAS storage expansion. I/O features of the aTCA-6100 include Base Interface channels, Fabric Interface channels, four front/rear egress ports and update channels. Front panel I/O includes two RJ-45 GbE ports, three USB 2.0 ports, RJ-45 to DB-9 standard serial port and DB-15 connector for analog graphics. Combining high computing performance, high memory capacity and high speed I/O interface integration, the ADLINK’s aTCA-6100 is designed for high-end telecom applications.
