ATCA Node Features the Second-generation AMD Opteron Processor
Diversified Technology announced the ATC6231, a dual-core Second Generation AMD Opteron processor-based Node Board designed for the next generation of telecom applications. The PICMG 3.1 compliant processor blade is equipped with Second-Generation AMD Opteron processor Model 2210, each with 2MB L2 cache and support for up to 8 GB of memory per processor interface. It uses a high I/O bandwidth (HyperTransport technology link interface), Broadcom HT2100 and HT1000 server-class chipset. The ATC6231 uses a standard 2.5" SAS micro hard drive for storage. I/O peripherals located on-board are a 10/100/1000 Mbits/sec auto-negotiating with dual port Ethernet controller for the Base interface, a 1000 Mbits/sec dual port Ethernet controller for the Fabric interface, a 10/100/1000Mbits/sec auto-negotiating with dual port Ethernet controller for front panel interface, one AMC.1 site for user configuration (connectivity to the AMC Site is x8 PCI-Express with Common Option to SAS drive and Ethernet), and the board also features 16 MB of persistent through reset SRAM for error logging and other Telecommunication needed redundancy.
