10 Gigabit Ethernet Switch
- Intel FM3224/FM4224 10 Gigabit Ethernet low latency switch based AMC carrier board in a single slot aTCA form factor
- Intel® Core™ i7 processor w/two channel 72-bit ECC DDR3 memory running up to 1066MHz
- The board supports up to 3 Mid-Size B+ AMC bays, each with two 10GBase-KX4 Fat Pipe and two 1000Base-KX Base interfaces
The PARPRO PSA-110 ATCA AMC Carrier 10G Managed Switch Card is the Intel FM3224/FM4224 (previously Fulcrum) 10 Gigabit Ethernet low latency switch based AMC carrier board in a single slot aTCA form factor. The board supports up to 3 Mid-Size B+ AMC bays, each with two 10GBase-KX4 Fat Pipe and two 1000Base-KX Base interfaces. Optionally, two SFP+ interfaces and an HD-15 video connector are available on the front panel when used in a 2 AMC bay configuration. The PSA-110 provides four 10GBase-KX4 Fabric Channel and five 1000Base-T Base Channel interfaces to the aTCA backplane. Therefore the PSA-110 can be used either as a Node Board or a 5-slot Hub Board in a standard aTCA chassis (another example application could use 5 PSA-110 boards all operating in a full mesh configuration). The 3 AMC bay and 2 AMC bay configurations both support front panel RJ-45 10/100/1000Base-T Ethernet, two USB ports, and a serial port. There is also an RTM interface that supports two more USB ports and a digital video DisplayPort interface. The on-board 32-nm Intel Core i7 CPU with 72-bit DDR3 memory provides management functions for the Fulcrum switch, as well as providing a dual-core environment for running arbitrary application code. Management functions can either be provided by Fulcrum’s ControlPoint management application or by direct access to the FocalPoint API. CPU configuration options include multiple speeds, multiple memory configurations, multiple SSD sizes, and an optional PCIe connection to AMC B2 for use with AMC.1 cards or SCOPE-compliant AMC cards. Also available is CPU access to AMC.3 cards in any of the three AMC bays.
