The Asis MicroTCA 2U shelf offer outstanding cost effectiveness: it is fully compliant with the mTCA Chassis standard while providing a lot of room for processing at a very reasonable price. It achieves these goals by incorporating ATCA advantages to the mTCA world.
The shelf includes dual redundant 1000W power supply which provides all the power the various components need and is ready for future growth. The power supply is fully managed by the shelf manager and is an important part of the shelf price advantages by being “off-the-shelf” type, avoiding the usual high cost of mTCA supplies.
The shelf is cooled by one fan tray. Per the mTCA Chassis standard, the shelf manager controls the rotation speed of the fans according to the various shelf temperature sensors and reports the rotation speed of all fans. Asis achieves this functionality by a unique, reliable and cost effective mechanism.
