Kontron’s OM6060 is configured for the design, evaluation and test of compact, highly integrated multiprocessor systems in test equipment, packet processing and industrial applications.

The MicroTCA development platform’s chassis is 3U high, 250mm deep and 156mm wide.

It contains an AC power supply and fans with airflow from below the Advanced MC slots.

The OM6060 can accommodate up to six mid-size AMCs and one full-size MicroTCA Carrier Hub, and supports multiple PCIe, GbE and SRIO configurations.

Developers benefit from an increased flexibility in MicroTCA platform development, which helps them find a solution for specific application needs in a shorter time.

The Kontron OM6060 supports multiple CPUs and I/O-boards over PCI Express (PCIe) without the need of an extra PCIe fabric switch, helping to reduce system costs.

PCIe fabric clocks are generated on the Kontron OM6060 backplane.

The compact MicroTCA platform also provides Ethernet connectivity to all AMCs.

In such configurations an Ethernet switch is located on the MCH.

Depending on the level of Ethernet features required, Kontron offers a low-cost unmanaged MicroTCA Carrier Hub, the Kontron AM4901, or a fully featured MCH with carrier-grade switching and management features, the Kontron AM4904.

For packet-processing applications, the Kontron OM6060 provides extra direct Ethernet links between AMC slot one and four adjacent AMC slots, which can be used by an AMC packet processor, such as the Kontron AM4204 or AM4210.

10GbE fabrics and switches are not required, which reduces system complexity and board count, leading to overall reduced costs.

Alternatively, the Kontron OM6060 can be used with high-speed SRIO links in point-to-point configurations between adjacent AMCs.

If Ethernet connectivity is not needed, costs can be reduced by using a MicroTCA Carrier Management Controller module (MCMC-module) on the backplane.

The AMC bays are fully compliant with the AMC standards and the MicroTCA standard, so any standard compliant AMC may be used.

Customer-specific backplanes for OEM series production are available on request.

These multiple configuration options over the backplane make the OM6060 suitable for a range of applications.
