Elma, a leading backplane chassis vendor, and MicroBlade, a developer of AMC and MicroTCA products, have partnered to develop MicroTCA products and system solutions. Their goal is to provide the most innovative MicroTCA system solutions and best overall value available today.
MicroTCA is a modular, low-cost backplane specification that reduces the cost of telecommunications, industrial, medical, and military equipment. The first product developed together by the two companies is the 1U MicroBox. This unit features superior thermal performance in a compact size.
“Mike Franco, the President of MicroBlade, is the chairman of the PICMG MicroTCA Subcommittee and is widely regarded as the father of MicroTCA”, said Shan Morgan, VP of Sales for Elma Electronic. Elma is proud to be partnering with one of the key contributors for the MicroTCA and AMC specifications.”
