HENDERSON, Nev. -- VadaTech, a manufacturer of embedded boards and complete application-ready platforms, now offers a MicroTCA Carrier Hub (MCH) with a 40GbE option, synchronous Ethernet, and advanced clocking/GPS capability.

The new MCH is VadaTech’s 3rd generation module with several unique features that will transform the capability of a MicroTCA-based solution. The UTC004’s 40GbE option is a 4x boost in performance from today’s 10GbE solutions. The MCH also provides PCIe Gen 3, SRIO Gen 2, and a crossbar switch (CBS) option. The CBS allows any fabric to be utilized including custom solutions.

A key feature of the UTC004 is the advanced clocking/synchronization capability. The MCH enables highly flexible master/slave clock and time synchronization to multiple clocking standards including GPS, IEEE1588 (PTP), SyncE, and NTP. The MCH bridges these standards together to provide Grand Master Clock capability to the attached chassis network. For backplane and front panel clocking, the MCH features a low-latency, low-jitter, low-skew M-LVDS clock matrix to ensure the best possible backplane clocking solution. A quad PLL clock network synchronizer enables synchronizing clocks with hitless failover referenced to clocks/pulses coming from the front panel, backplane, on-board GPS/IEEE1588 (PTP)/NTP 1PPS, or SyncE ports.

These PLLs can then jitter clean or synthesize arbitrary frequency clocks and pulses to output to the front panel or backplane with up to Stratum-3 holdover criteria. The result of all of these features is precision timing, aligned frequency/phase of the signals, and eliminating the risk of packet loss due to buffer overflow. These features are important for Communications, MIL/Aero, and Physics applications where synchronized timing is critical.

In addition to a management Ethernet RJ45 port, the MCH provides a base channel Ethernet fabric with two front panel 10GBase-T RJ-45 ports for 20Gb combined uplink bandwidth as standard. When a Fat Pipes fabric is ordered, additional uplink ports are provided such as QSFP+, Dual SFP+, or Dual 10GBase-T RJ45 for Fat Pipes fabric uplink; providing up to an additional 40Gb of uplink bandwidth.

Understanding the full experience of women in technology requires starting at the collegiate level (or sooner) and studying the technologies women are involved with, company cultures they're part of and personal experiences of individuals.

During this WiC radio show, we will talk with Nicole Engelbert, the director of Research & Analysis for Ovum Technology and a 23-year telecom industry veteran, about her experiences and perspectives on women in tech. Engelbert covers infrastructure, applications and industries for Ovum, but she is also involved in the research firm's higher education team and has helped colleges and universities globally leverage technology as a strategy for improving recruitment, retention and graduation performance.

She will share her unique insight into the collegiate level, where women pursuing engineering and STEM-related degrees is dwindling. Engelbert will also reveal new, original Ovum research on the topics of artificial intelligence, the Internet of Things, security and augmented reality, as well as discuss what each of those technologies might mean for women in our field. As always, we'll also leave plenty of time to answer all your questions live on the air and chat board.
