Power Interface Module Simplifies Low-EMI Design in ATCA Applications

Ericsson recently announced the availability of the PIM4610PD power interface module (PIM), which simplifies low-EMI design in Advanced Telecom Computing Architecture (ATCA) applications. An extension of Ericsson’s 3E* PIM family, the new PIM4610PD has been optimized to simplify design in blade server-applications based on ATCA and PICMG 3.7 systems.

  • The PIM4610PD’s features and specs:

    Minimized ripple and noise characteristics have been minimized

  • Operates over an input range of 36 to 75 V
  • Delivers 864 W with a 54-V input, 768 W at 48 V, and 600 W at 37.5 V
  • Built-in digital monitoring and an extensive range of energy-monitoring functionalities via an I2C/PMBus interface
  • Protection against input transients, reverse polarity, over-temperature, over-current, input under-voltage, and inrush current
  • A well-controlled shutdown procedure that enables de-assertion of the Power Good pin when input power is below a certain level
  • Quarter-brick format, measuring 57.9 × 36.8 × 21.33 mm

The  PIM4610PD starts at $72 for OEM quantities.

Switch Blade for Bandwidth-Demanding Applications

ADLINK_webThe aTCA-3710 is a 40G AdvancedTCA (ATCA) switch blade featuring a Broadcom BCM56846 10/40  gigabit Ethernet (GbE) fabric interface switch, a Broadcom BCM56334 24-port GbE base interface switch, and a Freescale QorIQ P2041 quad-core local management processor. The switch blade provides 14 10-GbE SFP+ uplink ports and supports 640-GBPS bandwidth for use in 14-slot 40G ATCA shelves. The aTCA-3710 is ideal for service providers requiring fast, high-quantity data throughput processing.

The aTCA-3710 40-GbE ATCA fabric interface switch blade is compliant with PICMG 3.0 R3.0 and PICMG 3.1 R2.0 standards. The high-performance server switch—along with CPU/NPU blades and ADLINK Software for Networks (ADSN)—can be used to constitute a 40G ARIP for next-generation applications. With a rich front panel I/O and a hot-swappable design, the aTCA-3710 guarantees high availability, scalability, and straightforward maintenance.
