Schroff has introduced a family of compact MicroTCA cubes, designed to enable users to create cost-effective systems for industrial control.

In many such applications, there is no need for full redundancy or many of the system management functions defined in the MicroTCA standard, so Schroff has developed the cubes to minimise costs while retaining the functionality required for the use of conventional AdvancedMC modules.

These simplified MicroTCA systems are available in subrack and case styles, measuring only 157 x 150 x 250mm and 176 x 133 x 316mm respectively.

Capable of accommodating four single full-size AdvancedMC modules and one single full-size MicroTCA carrier hub, the cubes feature a MicroTCA backplane with star connections for GbE and direct connections for the storage interface.

The units are powered by a built-in 250W open-frame power supply with a rear IEC mains socket, and active thermal management is provided by three hot-swappable fans.

Schroff can also produce bespoke MicroTCA cubes to meet customer requirements.

For over four decades Schroff has been a world leader in the development and manufacture of electronics packaging components and systems.

The company offers a comprehensive range of enclosure solutions, including cabinets, subracks, cases, backplanes and power supplies, as well as complete systems for standard bus architectures such as VME, cPCI, AdvancedTCA and MicroTCA.

These products are based on the know-how of specialists in the integration of mechanical, electronic and thermal management systems, together with many years’ experience of the most diverse applications in all kinds of environments. Schroff technical personnel are also heavily involved in the development of international standards for electronics packaging systems, with representatives on numerous working groups of institutions such as the IEC, CENELEC, IEEE, BSI, VDE and DIN.
