AdvancedTCA or ATCA is a bladed computing system architecture based on open, industry-managed standards supported by a rich multi-vendor ecosystem.
The ATCA architecture provides an excellent foundation for rugged, high-performance, embedded computing platforms.
ATCA is an enabling environment for achieving information dominance, supporting the modular open systems approach (MOSA) and commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) technologies and reducing size, weight, power and cost (SWaP-C).
ATCA has become the compute architecture of choice for net centric applications, with deployments in mission control, sensors and communications, and weapons systems and control measures.
ATCA is inherently a rugged architecture which is appropriate for ship, airborne and in-theatre command centers
And finally, ATCA systems benefit from long seven-year-plus life cycle designs versus the typical 18-24 month replacement cycle associated with rack mount servers.
Artesyn has worked with leading military prime contractors to create variants of its ATCA chassis that are adapted for more challenging environments, while still keeping the COTS basis of systems and components intact.
The processing power behind Artesyn’s ATCA systems for military and aerospace applications comes from the latest Intel Xeon Scalable processors.
