MicroTCA Module Management Controller

MMC v1.00 is a Software Solution for management of MicroTCA boards. It is fully compliant to the MicroTCA.4 standard and provides easy integration and full support of rear transition modules with emphasis on interoperability and compatibility. It is available together with a hardware reference design for evaluation and reduced time-to-market. It bases on Atmel ATxmega MCU and it can be used as a drop-in-module with pre-build binary firmware or it can be fully customized due to the availability of full source code.

Benefits

The solution handles all standard-IPMI functions including hot-plug and LED diagnostics. It controls power supplies (e.g. using PMBUS) and can monitor oard status using I²C sensors and build-in A/D converters. It allows control of on-board payload (such as FPGA/CPU/DSP) including reconfiguration and firmware update over IPMI protocol.
MMC v1.00 features design data for complete reartransition module management including an optional dedicated Rear Transition Management Controller (RMC). It supports e-keying and comes with double FRU support (AMC+μRTM).
