Description

Learn the key parts to get RTM backplane running in a MTCA.4 systems: * rear transition module for MCH with connection to RTM backplane * rear power module connected to RTM backplane * management of the rear power modules * management of µRTMs connected to front AMCs * management of µRTMs connected to front AMCs and RTM backplane * management of eRTMs with only connection to RTM backplane

Summary

Desy and industrial partners extend MicroTCA.4 by integrating a RTM backplane behind the MTCA backplane. In the PICMG MTCA.4 hardware workgroup the mechanics and management extensions are prepared for standardization.

This presentation shows how

  • the needed differential power i.e. +7,-7 Volt is produced and connected to the RTM backplane
  • to manage this power and how e-keying is implemented
  • to manage beside the µRTMs with optional RF connector also the eRTMs (eRTMs are not connected to any front AMC)
  • how to manage a minimal configuration with just one eRTM but no additional power

After listening to this presentation you will have a status update of the standardization of RF in MTCA.4 in the PICMG hardware working group and about the available hard- and software components.
