EMI problems in MTCA.4 system can degrade the whole system accuracy. An AMC board called DAMC-EMI board was developed at DESY to easily identify the conductive mode EMI problems in MTCA.4 system. Now a new revision (R1.1) of the board has been developed. A selected measurement results which show some of the EMI problems in MTCA.4 systems are presented.

In MTCA.4 systems sensitive analogue and aggressive digital signals have to be handled on one board or one AMC/RTM combination. The open MTCA architecture with plugged in modules designed by multiple designers for multiple purposes creates additional noise on the sensitive analogue signals. In the DC and low frequency range this EMC problem is dominated by conductive coupling especially within the ... More

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 backplan ...

The PICMG xTCA for Physics Technical Committees were approved in May 2009 so now have been operating for over five years. The major work of the PICMG MTCA.4 hardware extensions to MTCA.0, “MicroTCA Enhancements for Rear I/O and Precision Timing”, was approved in September 2011, a short time for such an extensive undertaking. This standard seems now firmly established in several labs and suppo ... More

To enhance the compatibility and modularity of AMC and RTM boards, board manufacturers should follow the ZONE3 classes for analog or digital applications. The ZONE3 classes are in the ratification process of the PICMG consortium. For having a simple E-keying based on class identifiers and to guarantee the backward compatibility of existing boards, subclasses in the analog class were introduce ... More

To interface with the outside world, many devices provide some control registers which can be accessed via a field bus. Introducing a standardised set of registers will allow one to use the same software tools for many board. They can for instance have a common driver or user space library. The PICMG software working group is currently working on an implementation recommendation guideline called S ... More
