ATCA-F14040G ATCA Switch Blade


The ATCA-F140 from Artesyn Embedded Technologies is a high performance, high bandwidth 40G switch blade for AdvancedTCA® platforms. This product is perfect for the most bandwidth intensive telecom applications such as LTE and 4G network build-out.

Along with the maximum ATCA fabric bandwidth available, the ATCA-F140 includes several features to maximize the cost effectiveness of your ATCA solution. Combining several ATCA® functions within a single blade design allows end users to maximize billable slots with revenue-generating application blades. This is accomplished with a combination of factory build options as well as several field options.

Optional functions include telecom clock generation and distribution, SATA based hard drive devices (HDDs) and an AdvancedMC™ (AMC) site for general processing and/or packet processing functions.

Several applications can be easily mapped to the flexible configuration options provided by the ATCA-F140. One common application is to combine the ATCA base and fabric interface switching function with the System Management function. This is done using a processor AMC and an on-board SATA HDD.

Another application scenario is to combine the base and fabric interface switching function with a 10G packet processing AMC. Selecting different configuration options also allows for maximum external I/O via 1G, 10G and 40G Ethernet interfaces from the front panel and/or optional RTM.

Many more configurations are possible, all fully controlled using a software utility. Basic Blade Services (BBS) software is a fully integrated and verified software package available for the ATCA-F140. It includes Linux operating system (OS), all required device drivers and SRstackware® switch software.

A powerful on-board service processor executes all switch functions, blade setup and hardware platform management functions independent of any processor AMC and/or SATA HDD installed. This allows full, 100% utilization of the AMC based processor for end-user applications.
