With increased demand for sustainability, efficiency, and more connected transportation experiences, air, sea, land, and rail applications place high demands on embedded computing systems. These systems also have to weather tough environmental conditions while also providing greater bandwidth, networking and performance. 


MicroTCA technology brings an open, standards-based approach that provides inherent fault-tolerant high reliability, with varying levels of ruggedization, and remote system management. A high performance fabric backplane provides a high speed interconnect between hardware modules that can feature a range of commercial or embedded multicore processors, specialist devices, storage and I/O. MicroTCA also offers scalability from the smallest vehicle-borne equipment to large systems with a common system management architecture and hardware and software modules.


VadaTech offers custom solutions for transportation applications, as with two recent systems for railway dispatch and monitoring that both used our 8U VT811 chassis with rear I/O modules, with some variations of the internal hardware modules. We utilized a VadaTech PCIe Gen3 UTC004 MCH for fast communication to the Intel Xeon E3 processor and a 4-port GbE module for network communications. With full system management and failover functions, the system can ensure 99.99999% or ‘seven-nines’ uptime.
