AdvancedTCA, or Advanced Telecommunications Computing Architecture
, is a PICMG specification designed for the next generation of carrier grade communications equipment, which has recently expanded into rugged applications geared toward the mil/aero industries. This specification incorporates the latest high speed interconnect technologies, next generation processors and improved reliability.
AdvancedTCA blades can be designed for a number of uses, including Processors, Switches and AMC carriers. A typical shelf could contain one or more switch blades and several processor blades. An AdvancedTCA blade is 280 mm deep and 322 mm high, and incorporates a metal front panel and a metal cover on the bottom of the PCB to limit electromagnetic interference. AdvancedTCA boards also support the use of PCI Mezzanine Card (PMC) or Advanced Mezzanine Card (AMC) expansion mezzanines.
