MIC-5342 ATCA, Dual Socket CPU Blade with Intel® Xeon® E5-2600 v3/v4 Series Processors for Telecom Applications

The MIC-5342 is a dual processor ATCA blade based on the Intel® platform formerly codenamed “River Forest”. It enables the highest performance available in ATCA form factor with up to 28 cores and 56 threads of processing power, fast PCI Express gen. 3 lanes, and best in class virtualization support. Two QPI interfaces between the CPUs improve memory and I/O access throughput and latencies when one processor needs to access resources hosted by the other. With four DDR4 DIMMs per socket in a quad channel design running up to 2400MT/s, the MIC-5342 not only offers superior memory bandwidth over 3-channel designs, but can also support RAM density up to 256GB. It outperforms previous generation designs while keeping similar thermal characteristics with balanced airflow resistance.
Fabric connectivity is implemented by two Intel® Ethernet controllers XL710-BM2 devices, connecting to four backplane fabric channels. This allows the MIC-5342 to scale from legacy 10GbE to high speed 40GbE network interfaces as well as enable optional dual-dual star support for the most demanding applications utilizing 4 hub blades per system.
A Fabric Mezzanine Module type II socket with PCIe x16 connectivity provides on-board expansion capability for additional front panel I/O, offload and acceleration controllers such as the Intel® Communications Chipset 8900 Series, IPSec offload engines, or customer specific logic.
The onboard IPMI firmware based on Advantech’s advanced IPMI core enhances modularity and flexibility for customization of system management features, and provides a framework for value-added features that enhance the Reliability, Availability, Serviceability, Usability and Manageability of the product. HPM.1 based updates, including rollback support, are available for all programmable components such as the BIOS, BIOS settings, IPMC firmware, and FPGA.
Advantech’s IPMI solution, combined with an optimized UEFI BIOS, continues to offer advanced features used on previous generation Advantech MIC-533x blades, such as HPM.2 support, Dynamic Power Budgeting, BIOS redundancy, Real Time Clock Synchronization and MAC mirroring. Advantech’s IPMI firmware has been tested for PICMG compliance using the Polaris Networks ATCA Test Suite and against a variety of AdvancedTCA shelf management solutions.
The MIC-5342 connects 8 PCIe gen.3 lanes to Zone 3 for hot-swappable RTMs such as the RTM-5107, which supports two SAS HDDs. Supports Advantech’s Customized COTS framework.

MIC-5345 ATCA CPU Blade with Dual/Single Socket Intel® Xeon® E5-2600 Processor v3/v4 Series for Server & NFV Applications

Advantech’s MIC-5345 is a 40G dual processor ATCA blade based on the Intel® Xeon® E5-2600 v3/v4 series. The MIC-5345 is offered in two main configurations:
As a dual processor blade supporting 16 DDR4 VLP DIMM slots it offers best in class memory support at lowest cost making it an ideal choice for typical server workloads and virtualized application scenarios such as NFV. Up to 512GB memory capacity allow users to harness the full capabilities of CPU with up to 24 cores and 48 threads for virtualization and adequate physical memory per virtual machine.
The dual socket SKU supports a a Fabric Mezzanine Module type II socket with PCIe x8 connectivity providing extension possibilities for additional front port I/O, offload and acceleration controllers such as the Intel® Communications Chipset 89xx Series, other IPSec offload engines or customer specific logic.
Two QPI interfaces between the CPUs improve memory and I/O access throughput and latencies when one processor needs to access resources hosted by the other socket. It outperforms previous generation dual socket designs while keeping similar thermal characteristics.
In a single processor configuration, the MIC-5345 offers a very attractive price point for applications which require lower processing power such as control plane and orchestration. With support for 8 DIMM sockets, two 2.5″ SSDs and the processing performance of a server-class processor, the MIC-5345 comes with an optimized feature set and outperforms 1st and 2nd generation dual socket ATCA blades resulting in a major cost reduction.
The single socket MIC-5345 SKU features two additional CFAST sockets instead of an FMM site.
Both blade configurations feature two 10/40GbE fabric ports based on the Intel® Ethernet controller XL710-AM2 with fast PCI Express gen. 3 technology running at up to 8Gbps per lane and best-in-class virtualization support.
Advantech’s IPMI solution, combined with an optimized UEFI BIOS, continues to offer advanced features used on previous generation MIC-533x blades, such as HPM.2 support, Dynamic Power Budgeting, BIOS redundancy, Real Time Clock Synchronization and MAC Mirroring. Advantech IPMI firmware has been tested for CP-TA compliance using the Polaris Networks ATCA Test Suite and against a variety of AdvancedTCA shelf management solutions.
