Advanced Telecommunications Computing Architecture (ATCA or AdvancedTCA) is the largest specification effort in the history of the PCI Industrial Computer Manufacturers Group (PICMG), with more than 100 companies participating.
In telecommunication, a "carrier grade" or "carrier class" refers to a system, or a hardware or software component that is extremely reliable, well tested and proven in its capabilities.
A chassis (plural chassis) is the internal framework of an artificial object, which supports the object in its construction and use.
Commercial off-the-shelf or commercially available off-the-shelf (COTS) satisfy the needs of the purchasing organization, without the need to commission custom-made, or bespoke, solutions.
In telecommunication, a communication protocol is a system of rules that allow two or more entities of a communications system to transmit information via any kind of variation of a physical quantity.
An electrical connector, is an electro-mechanical device used to join electrical terminations and create an electrical circuit.
An electronic component is any basic discrete device or physical entity in an electronic system used to affect electrons or their associated fields.
Ethernet is a family of computer networking technologies commonly used in local area networks (LAN), metropolitan area networks (MAN) and wide area networks (WAN).
FPGA Mezzanine Card (FMC) is an ANSI/VITA (VMEbus International Trade Association) 57.1 standard that defines I/O mezzanine modules with connection to an FPGA or other device with re-configurable I/O capability.
Hot swapping (frequently inaccurately called hot plugging) is replacing or adding components without stopping or shutting down the system.
Kontron AG is a German-based multinational company which designs and manufactures embedded computer modules, boards and systems.
Low-voltage differential signaling, or LVDS, also known as TIA/EIA-644, is a technical standard that specifies electrical characteristics of a differential, serial communications protocol.
MicroTCA is an open standard embedded computing specification created by PICMG.
The open-source model is a decentralized software-development model that encourages open collaboration.
PCI Express (Peripheral Component Interconnect Express), officially abbreviated as PCIe or PCI-e, is a high-speed serial computer expansion bus standard, designed to replace the older PCI, PCI-X, and AGP bus standards.
A PCI Mezzanine Card or PMC is a printed circuit board assembly manufactured to the IEEE P1386.1 standard.
The PCI Industrial Computer Manufacturers Group (PICMG) is a consortium of over 150 companies.
In electronics, a pinout (sometimes written "pin-out") is a cross-reference between the contacts, or pins, of an electrical connector or electronic component, and their functions.
A printed circuit board (PCB) mechanically supports and electrically connects electronic components or electrical components using conductive tracks, pads and other features etched from one or more sheet layers of copper laminated onto and/or between sheet layers of a non-conductive substrate.
The RapidIO architecture is a high-performance packet-switched, interconnect technology.
Ratification is a principal's approval of an act of its agent that lacked the authority to bind the principal legally.
In electronics, a signal trace on a printed circuit board (PCB) is the equivalent of a wire for conducting signals.
A specification often refers to a set of documented requirements to be satisfied by a material, design, product, or service.
10 Gigabit Attachment Unit Interface (XAUI) is a standard for extending the XGMII (10 Gigabit Media Independent Interface) between the MAC and PHY layer of 10 Gigabit Ethernet (10GbE) defined in Clause 47 of the IEEE 802.3 standard.
