rong>aTCA is designed to meet the performance and flexibility requirements of NEPs and TEMs

aTCA-6200 processor blade from ADLINKADLINK Technology, Inc. (TAIEX: 6166), a leading provider of trusted telecom computing products, today announced availability of the aTCA-6200, a next-generation AdvancedTCA® (ATCA) processor blade that demonstrates ADLINK’s leadership in the development of high performance compute blades with flexible expansion capabilities. The aTCA-6200 features two 1.8 GHz eight-core Intel® Xeon® processors E5-2648L, the Intel® C604 chipset, DDR3-1600 memory up to 128GB, and a PICMG® mid-size AMC bay. On-card connectivity includes dual 10GBASE-KX4 Fabric Interfaces, dual GbE Base Interfaces, dual front panel GbE egress ports, CFast socket, and quad SAS channels, which provide leading-edge network performance and storage capabilities. The aTCA-6200 is ideal for carrier-grade applications such as media servers in IPTV, IP Multimedia Subsystem (IMS) broadband networks, and wireless infrastructures, providing telecom equipment manufacturers (TEMs) and network equipment providers (NEPs) with a flexible, cost-effective solution for mission-critical applications and a reliable, smooth path for scalability and expansion.

“With its two eight-core Intel® Xeon® processors E5-2648L, eight sockets for DDR3-1600 VLP RDIMM memory up to 128GB capacity, and one mid-size AMC bay, the aTCA-6200 delivers the computing power of 32 concurrent threads, massive I/O and memory capacity, and flexible connectivity for high-end telecom and media server applications requiring carriergrade performance,” said Eric Kao, director of ADLINK's Embedded Computing Product Segment.

“ADLINK’s aTCA-6200 is equipped with the latest Intel® Xeon® processor E5-2648L featuring an integrated memory controller and two Intel® QuickPath Interconnect (Intel® QPI) point-to-point link interfaces. Intel® QPI provides higher bandwidth with low latency connectivity from processor to processor at up to 8 GT/s,” explained Steve Price, director of marketing, Communications Infrastructure Division, Intel. "With Intel® Hyper-Threading Technology and Intel® Turbo Boost Technology, the Intel® Xeon® processors E5-2648L
increase the performance of both multi-threaded and single-threaded workloads and energy efficiency.”

ADLINK’s new aTCA-6200 provides high-speed data-transfer on the PICMG 3.1 Fabric Interface enabled by an Intel® 82599EB 10GbE Ethernet controller and Base Interface connectivity provided by Intel® 82576EB Gigabit Ethernet controllers. Versatile storage support includes four channels of SAS RAID 0/1, onboard bootable CFast socket, onboard 2.5” SATA drive space, and modular Fabric riser card for additional PICMG Fabric Interface protocols. The mid-size AMC bay supports AMC.1 PCI Express and Advanced Switching,
AMC.2 Gigabit Ethernet and AMC.3 SATA/SAS storage expansion. I/O features of the aTCA-6200 include Base Interface channels, Fabric Interface channels and front/rear egress ports. Front panel I/O includes two RJ-45 GbE ports, three USB 2.0 ports, an RJ-45 to DB-9 standard serial port and a DB-15 connector for analog graphics output.

ADLINK Technology will feature the aTCA-6200 in Booth 1837 at ESC/Design West at the McEnery Convention Center in San Jose from March 27 – 29.
