MCH & Shelf Management

Our range of air or conduction-cooled MCHs are now in their third generation, with options up to 40GbE speeds, and a jitter and clock cleaner for improved signal performance. These products are on active duty, deployed in a wide variety of applications such as radar signal processing, data recording, C4ISR and naval towed array. We have developed key new features, such as Battle Short and Cold Start, which are typically not required in commercial environments, to address the harsh conditions faced by soldiers, sailors and pilots. Our robust Carrier Manager and Shelf Management software has been deployed for years with proven results. We also offer an IPMI Controller reference schematic as a complete hardware and software solution as a quick way for you to develop for the AMC and MicroTCA form factor without prior IPMI knowledge.
