Ruggedized MicroTCA COTS System Platform





The new MicroTCA chassis is an ARINC 404A Full-Size COTS System Platform, often used in commercial and military aviation. The rugged enclosure features modified front panels that can be secured to the chassis. This provides more protection for shock and vibration. Shock absorbers/dampers can also be added to the enclosure for extra protection. Thermal management can be achieved via either convection or conduction-cooling.
