HENDERSON, Nev., 10 Sept. 2013. VadaTech Inc. in Henderson, Nev., is introducing the VT811 8U MicroTCA.4 chassis for applications that require rear I/O. The embedded computing chassis has redundancy, including dual fan trays, dual MicroTCA Carrier Hub (MCH) slots, and quad Power Module (PM) slots.

The VadaTech VT811 chassis has a lightweight aluminum construction with integrated cable ducts below the card cage to enable systems designers to protect the cables and route them to the rear of the chassis.

The fan trays use Teflon strips which make insertion and extraction smoother and easier. Plus, the trays have shrouded blind-mate connectors for the male and female ends.

The VT811 chassis has a 30-layer impedance controlled backplane with slots for 12 double-wide AMC modules in the mid-size, plus 2 MCHs, and 4 PMs. The clock traces are laid out to give equal track length from MCH to each AMC slot, easing latency equalization.

The rear of the enclosure allows for 12 double-wide Rear Transition Modules (RTMs) to be inserted. The fan trays are arranged with sixteen two-inch fans above and below the card cage in a push-pull configuration.

The VT811 chassis also has radial I2C bus to each AMC, an integrated and pluggable JTAG Switch Module (JSM), and Telco Alarm. Ports 2-3, 12-15 and 17-20 are connected among the slots per the MicroTCA.4 recommendation.
