ATCA Base & Fabric HUB project

Custom Design of Hardware, Firmware and Software Electronics

Development of an ATCA Base & Fabric HUB hardware, firmware and software electronics design project
  • Marvell Prestera-DX Packet processors
  • Supports two AMC modules

The AdvancedTCA Base & Fabric HUB is fully PICMG 3.0/3.1 and AMC.0 R2.0-compatible. It is designed to handle the 14-slot Dual-Star ATCA platforms. It is based on the Marvell Prestera-DX Packet processors that support L2/L3 switching/routing.The board supports two AMC modules, which are the Full-size module designed to connect the telecom synchronization module and the Mid-size module to which two 10Gb (XAUI) Ethernet Uplinks are connected from the Base and Fabric Switches respectively.

The front panel features connectors for connecting GbE Uplinks from the Base and Fabric Switches, the status indicators of the GbE ports and RS-232 from the control processor.
