Kontron OM6060 - MicroTCA 6 Slot Compact System for Industrial Applications

Compact System for up to 6 AMCs incl. AC Power and fans


The OM6060 is a compact AMC platform targeted as entry level solution for prototypes in test equipment, packet processing and industrial applications. It can accommodate up to 6 mid-size AMCs and one MCH (full-size). An AC power supply is located in the rear. The OM6060 supports multiple CPUs with I/O-boards over PCIExpress (PCIe) without need of an extra PCIe fabric switch. PCIe fabric clocks are generated on the OM6060 backplane. Without need of Ethernet connectivity, the OM6060 provides MicroTCA management for AMCs over an MCMC-module (AM2901) on the backplane. This way, overhead and costs are reduced to a minimum.

The OM6060 also provides Ethernet connectivity to all AMCs. In such confi gurations an Ethernet switch is located on the MCH. Depending on the level of Ethernet features required Kontron offers a low-cost unmanaged MCH (AM4901), or a fully featured MCH with carrier grade switching and management features (AM4904).

For packet processing applications, the OM6060 provides extra direct Ethernet links from AMC slot 1 to four adjacent AMC slots, which can be used by a packet processor on AMC, such as the AM4204 or AM4210. This way 10GbE fabrics and switches are not required.

Alternatively, the OM6060 can be used with high-speed SRIO links in point to-point configurations between adjacent AMCs. The AMC bays are fully compliant with the AMC standards and the MicroTCA standard, so any standard compliant AMC may be used. The OM6060 represents an entry level environment for the development of customer I/O boards on AMC. To support such developments, it can be combined with an AMC starter kit, which is available on request. The OM6060 backplane has been designed to support a wide range of applications. Customer specific backplanes are available on request.
