AdvancedTCA node blade: Intel Xeon Six-Core 5600 (32nm) processor; or, Intel Xeon 5500 (45nm) quad core processor Series.
The AT8050 is a single-socket processor blade and, as opposed to a dual socket approach, the advantages are that clients can still make use of the one available AdvancedMC slot for further feature extensions.
COM Express, a computer-on-module (COM) form factor, is a highly integrated and compact PC that can be used in a design application much like an integrated circuit component. Each COM Express Module COM integrates core CPU and memory functionality, the common I/O of a PC/AT, USB, audio, graphics, and Ethernet. All I/O signals are mapped to two high density, low profile connectors on the bottom side of the module.
Advanced Telecommunications Computing Architecture (ATCA or AdvancedTCA) is the largest specification effort in the history of the PCI Industrial Computer Manufacturers Group (PICMG), with more than 100 companies participating. Known as AdvancedTCA, the official specification designation is PICMG 3.x (see below). AdvancedTCA is targeted to requirements for the next generation of “carrier grade” communications equipment.
