The Advantech MIC-5604 is a single-width mid-size general purpose processor AMC module for ATCA or MicroTCA applications. Its design is based on Intel® Xeon Processor D-1500 SoC processors in a BGA package. This AMC module supports processors with integrated memory controllers, and a maximum cache of 6MB. It can support up to 8/16 GB, dual-channel, on-board DDR4 memory with ECC at 2133/1866 MHz, making it ideal for mission critical applications requiring low latency and reliable memory access.
For graphics or control applications the front panel HDMI port provides the Display support.
As standard feature, external Ethernet connectivity is provided on two dedicated GbE front panel ports, one each from the onboard Intel® I350 AM4 quad port LAN controller, which also provides two additional GbE ports to the AMC base fabric. The Intel® I350 supports remote management capabilities with KVM over LAN as well as introducing faster I/O than previous generation designs with SATA-III to AMC ports 2..3 and PCIe x4 gen.2 to ports 4..7. This module can also be configured to boot from the network, M.2 SSD, or external storage media such as HDD or USB drives.
To enable maximum application flexibility, the MIC-5604 is not only designed to support PICMG AMC sub-specifications such as AMC.1/.2/.3, it also has a fabric expansion mezzanine interface that allows the implementation of standard or customized mezzanine modules that offer enhanced fat pipe connectivity and I/O support.
A dedicated Module Management Controller (MMC) monitors onboard conditions and manages hot swap operation, module replacement and field upgrades without the need to power down the carrier system.
