Elma Upgrades 5-slot
The upgraded 5-slot ATCA backplane now features standard MicroTCA connectors, which are small and dense, for the Elma’s IPM Sentry shelf manager connections. In addition to saving space, the connectors are widely available, reliable, and with compression mount design are field-replacable. If damaged, the MicroTCA connector can be unscrewed from the backplane and replaced.
The 5-slot ATCA backplane features a 3x replicated Mesh topology, although a standard Full Mesh or even Dual Star can be implemented. The backplane has 18 layers and is optimized for performance via signal integrity studies.
