AdvancedTCA 14-Slot Shelf for Dense Computing Applications
Asis announced the Perform Series –14-slot AdvancedTCA shelf designed to the space and cooling demands of today's dense computing environments. Created for dense blade server environments, the shelf offers desirable computing density by its ability to fit three 14-slot, 12U shelves mounted in a standard 42U rack while maintaining critical cooling performance of 300W per slot. Exceeding NEBS (GR63) and PICMG 3.0 cooling requirements, the series includes 2, 5, 6 and 14-slot chassis featuring a fault-tolerant airflow design based on comprehensive thermal studies. Incorporating advanced fan systems and patented air flow technology assures the high-level of cooling. The advanced cooling scheme enables customization of the air flow according to user's specific needs – allowing extreme high power dissipation from selected slots. For applications of more than 300W per slot, airflow can be customized to meet specific thermal requirements.
