Kontron (Booth 3937) is introducing the Kontron AT8404, a PICMG 3.0/3.1-compliant AdvancedTCA carrier board, with four mid-sized AMC slots that support a full range of AMC modules, including TDM interfaces (E-1/T-1, STM-1, OC-3), NPUs, DSPs, processor AMCs and storage AMCs. The Kontron AT8404 has redundant 10 GbE on the fabric interface, and meets the newly adopted AMC.0 rev 2, AMC.2 and AMC.3 PICMG specifications. This includes 5x 1 GbE to each AMC with L2 switching support and direct AMC interconnect for PCI-Express, SRIO, 10GbE or SAS/SATA. The product has extensive AMC module support that offers the highest possible level of customized system level configurations to suit the design needs of multiple and combined network applications on one dual-star 14- and 16-slot system to drive the data, voice and video content for triple-play services. With the support of more than 2x1GbE per AMC slot, this carrier board is the ideal candidate for 10 GbE applications using a variety of available network processor AMCs in an IPTV system design.
