The ATC5232 node blade and ATS2148 switch blade, developed by Diversified Technology, meet the deployment needs for AdvancedTCA (ATCA) solutions designed around the InfiniBand fabric. The ATC5232 is designed for next-generation telecom equipment. The board is a PICMG 3.2 compliant processor combines low price with high performance for wireless access/edge, telecom fiber transport, media gateways, soft switches, and Internet IP-based applications.
DTI's ATC5232 is equipped with dual low-voltage Intel Xeon 3.06-GHz processors, each with 2 Mbytes of L2 cache. It utilizes a high I/O bandwidth Intel E7520 server-class chip set with an 800-MHz front side bus and support for up to 16 Gbytes of memory. The ATC5232 uses a standard 2.5-in. IDE micro hard drive for storage. I/O peripherals located on-board are two auto-negotiating Gigabit Ethernet controllers for the base interface, two 10-Gbits/s “by-4” InfiniBand ports for the fabric interface, and one 64-bit, 66-MHz PMC site.
The board fully supports the AdvancedTCA concept of separate data and control plane traffic when paired with DTI's ATS2148. Operating systems supported include Red Hat Enterprise Linux, SuSE, and Fedora. More information is available at www.dtims.com.
