The AdvancedMC (AMC) specifications were developed as a mezzanine approach to support AdvancedTCA (ATCA) systems. In the early days of ATCA, standardized AMC carriers were adopted to provide more modularity, scalability, and I/O options. With the pluggable AMCs on the carrier, a fixed ATCA board suddenly became very versatile. Later, these same AMCs are the core of the MicroTCA (mTCA) platform. So, it is perhaps not surprising that the architectures are continuing to converge in new ways to offer even more performance and flexibility.
High-speed vision systems provide a prime example of advancements possible with CompactPCI Serial.
After more than a decade of deployment in communications infrastructure applications, evolutionary enhancements to the AdvancedTCA (ATCA) standard are opening new market opportunities and providing the performance required for next-generation networks. The following outlines incremental enhancements that will be seen in the ATCA standard through 2020, and sheds light on PICMG's post-ATCA technology roadmap.
For the past 20 years, the PCI Industrial Computer Manufacturers Group (PICMG) has been developing standards that enable industrial computing customers to deploy the latest technology while taking advantage of time-to-market and hardware cross-compatibility inherent in open standards. This article explores the early days of PICMG and how the organization continues to evolve to meet the needs of industrial customers deploying technology in a wide range of applications.
