The PicoTCA is a modular 19˝chassis in 2 U design supportingup to 12 AMCs (fullsize, compact) and an MCH (fullsize).The chassis is designed such that communication protocolscompliant with AMC.1 type 4 (PCIe and Advanced Switching),AMC.2 type 4, AMC.2 E2 (GbE) and AMC.3 (SAS/SATA) can all be handled. For SAS and SATA/AMC boards, apoint-to-point connection is realised via the backplane,so that each slot is able to communicate directly with itsneighbouring slots via ports 2 and 3. In the initial version, anMCH (Micro- TCA Carrier Hub) is supported via the backplane.Customer-specific designs and backplanes can be suppliedupon request.
