We will present a set of new open hardware modules in MTCA format developed in a large collaboration of research and private sector institutions including Creotech Instruments, Warsaw University of Technology, US ARL, University of Maryland, University of Oxford, QUARTIQ, M-Labs, CERN and LNLS. The modules allow for efficient and flexible integration of multi-purpose control systems. Use cases include Big Science applications and development of Quantum Technologies. The modules include a Smart AWG, a powerful RFSoC-AMC and AMC FMC Carrier boards with several validated extensions. They are compatible with open-source ARTIQ software for quantum physics laboratories. The modules support White Rabbit sub-nanosecond time synchronization. Alternatively, an extension card for N.A.T. MicroTCA carrier hub (MCH) can be implemented for controlling multiple slave devices in real time using the ARTIQ distributed real-time IO (DRTIO) protocol.
