LCR Electronics has expanded its line of AdvancedTCA (ATCA) systems to include three rugged chassis.

All of the models conform to MIL-STD-810 Method 514.5 and MIL-STD-167 Type 1, para.

5.1 for vibration as well as MIL-STD-810 Method 513.5 for acceleration, making LCR’s ATCA systems suitable for airborne, shipboard and mobile applications.

The Gemini, built to PICMG 3.0 Rev.

2, and the KBWD, built to PICMG 3.0 Rev.

3, are both 13U chassis available in dual-star 14-slot versions or in mesh three-, five- and seven-slot configurations.

Also built to PICMG 3.0, Rev.

3, the 12U KBWD-2, features a dual six-slot design, with each electrically-isolated, full-mesh backplane featuring four node slots and two hub slots.

All three use an intelligent platform management bus (IPMB).

Both the KBWD and KBWD-2 dissipate up to 300W per slot with dual redundant fan trays and rear transition module (RTM) cooling.

The Gemini dissipates 200W per slot using a single fan tray with RTM cooling available.

The Gemini incorporates a power entry module (PEM) with two hardwired 50A circuit breakers (CB) for A and B bus power.

The KBWD and KBWD-2 use pluggable, smart, redundant 100 A CB PEMS to provide power through both the A and B bus.

An optional MIL-STD 461 filter is available on the KBWD-2.

Each uses a standard -48 VDC ATCA power input with options available for the Gemini and the KBWD.

The units can be used as a standalone unit or mounted vertically in a standard rack system.

Side-mounted slides on the Gemini’s lower portion eliminate the need for a 1U chassis slide unit when mounted in a rack system.

The Gemini weighs 50lb, the KBWD weighs 82lb and the KBWD-2 weighs 80lb.

Operating temperature for all is -10C to 70C.

Pricing starts at USD19,750 (GBP12,020) per unit in low volumes.
