Elma Electronic, Inc. announced its extender board for MicroTCA and AMC-based systems that extends the signals out of the card cage area so that an Advanced Mezzanine Card (AMC) can be tested or debugged. The AMC extender card is a passive extender module, supporting all fabric connectors as defined in the AMC.x and MicroTCA specifications. The board complies with the MicroTCA.0, AMC.1 R1.0, AMC.2 D0.96A specifications, and it plugs into an AMC slot like a regular AMC module. Management and payload power can be individually switch isolated. The metal frame of the AMC extender card holds the board under test securely in place. The module extends all fabric signals and three clock lines, and it features virtually zero power consumption.
