We're starting to think about a successor to AMC13 for ATCA.

There have been some complaints about the place-holder name "Blade13". PLEASE SUGGEST new names on this convenient TWiki page:


Here are some random rumors about ATCA:

  • A typically-equipped ATCA crate with shelf manager, power supplies and cooling suitable for a test stand is US$10k (but one may also need an Ethernet switch module for another $8k or so)
  • Power per slot can range up to 500W (!)
  • An ATCA carrier can host four single-width AMC cards, but leaves very little board space for anything else
  • ATLAS is using ATCA for part of the FTK. A quick scan of their TDR did not reveal anything about clock/control/timing distribution.

Here is the obligatory set of "useful links":
