- Up to 350W per blade power distribution
The AXP1440 chassis from Penguin Solutions™ is built to the AdvancedTCA® (ATCA) open, industry-managed COTS standard to provide a platform for very dense computing and signal processing applications in military and industrial systems. The inherent ruggedness of ATCA, having been designed for the telecom industry’s NEBS standards, is proving ideal for semi-rugged deployments such as shipboard, airborne, and transit-case applications. With an architecture that was designed for high availability from its inception, ATCA systems provide the reliability and performance-assurance needed in applications such as radar control systems, unmanned system ground control stations, and control systems on ships and aircraft. Compared to conventional enterprise-grade rack-mount systems – the architecture found in the data centers of large corporations and Internet service providers – a bladed system such as ATCA offers substantial benefits for military, aerospace or security equipment. These benefits are often branded with the SWaP-C moniker – for Size, Weight, Power and Cost. The Penguin Edge™ AXP1440 includes redundant shelf manager and alarm modules, redundant power entry modules (PEMs) and two fan tray modules. A variety of payload blades and accessory products are available for the AXP1440 system depending on application requirements.
