Moto Sells MicroTCA

TEMPE, Ariz. -- Motorola, Inc. (NYSE:MOT) today announced orders worth $1 million for its MicroTCA(TM) system products that will enable off-the-shelf access to this open, standards-based technology.

The companies will integrate Motorola's MicroTCA core communications server technology into development systems to serve markets such as telecom access, military communications and diagnostic equipment for the healthcare industry. Early access to development systems such as this can help original equipment manufacturers gain rapid technology discovery and vital time-to- market advantage.

Simon Stanley, analyst at large at Heavy Reading and principal consultant for Earlswood Marketing said, "Motorola's numbers are by far the largest amount of revenue that I've seen for MicroTCA development systems and show that after only a few months since its ratification, MicroTCA adoption is well underway. The interest in MicroTCA across a range of markets encompassing telecom, military, medical and industrial computing applications indicates that MicroTCA has the potential to achieve significant economies of scale. With development budgets cut to the bone, standardized platforms such as MicroTCA will be crucial to the future success of many OEMs."
