MicroTCA: A force to be reckoned with for military, aerospace applications - Story

December 03, 2014
For applications requiring high performance, versatility, and reliability in a backplane-based system, the three main choices for open-standard computing architectures are OpenVPX, MicroTCA (MTCA), and AdvancedTCA (ATCA). For military and aerospace applications, AdvancedTCA often can?t compete on size, weight, and power (SWaP) unless its massive throughput is critical. Of the two remaining primary options, MicroTCA recently has been chosen over VPX in several new military and aerospace applications where VPX once dominated, ranging from airborne and naval settings to ground-vehicle-mount and fixed radar installations.
