BOSTON, Mass. – June 25 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — At the NXTComm show in Chicago Ill. June 19-21, 2007 (booth 4257N), CorEdge Networks demonstrated the industry’s first MicroTCA IPMI compliant 12V DC, 600W MicroTCA Power Module (CEN-MPWR-1260). Ideal for a variety of low cost or ruggedized military applications.
The 12V DC input is the most cost- and space-efficient MicroTCA power module. The 12V DC input PM also has the added advantage of being the easiest to cool using forced air or conduction cooled frames, making it ideal for ruggedized applications. With a 600W output, the CorEdge 12V PM has the highest output available of any MicroTCA-compliant PM to support the most power hungry applications.
The CEN-MPWR-1260 is a variation of CorEdge’s industry leading MicroTCA -48V PM (CEN-MPWR-4840). Both the CEN-MPWR-1260 and CEN-MPWR-4840 share the same channel-by-channel output power switching control and IPMI Power Module Enhanced Management Module Controller (PM-EMMC). The CorEdge PM-EMMC has been verified at the largest number of open interoperability workshops.
“The 12V PM is a good choice for certain low cost and some ruggedized applications,” said Will Chu, President of CorEdge Networks and Power Module section author of the PICMG Rugged MicroTCA specification. “Because CorEdge Networks had already produced a MicroTCA IPMI-compliant 12V PM, the PICMG Rugged MicroTCA Subcommittee requested that we author parts of the upcoming Rugged MicroTCA specification. By augmenting the existing MTCA.0 specification with a 12V PM that can be ruggedized, MicroTCA systems will address the needs of more customers.”
The CEN-MPWR-1260 uses a single D-subminiature 5W5 input connector and a MicroTCA-compliant PM output connector and is sampling now. CorEdge Networks also plans to introduce dual input 12VDC, 24VDC and AC versions of its power module in the second half of 2007.
