Artesyn Embedded Technologies Announces Centellis™ 8840

Artesyn Embedded Technologies announced the Centellis™ 8840, AdvancedTCA® open-standard server system. The Centellis 8840 integrates that technology into a NEBS-ready platform that will accept 40G ATCA blades and 100G blades when they are available. Artesyn has implemented an innovative QuadStar™ backplane architecture to provide four independent networks supporting up to 400Gbps aggregated bandwidth to every blade. Customers can achieve an aggregated system bandwidth of 1.6 Tb/s with no redundancy using today’s 40G switches and processor blades. When 100G switches and processor blades become available, the same QuadStar™ technology can enable up to 4.0 Tb/s aggregate system bandwidth in a non-redundant implementation using the same chassis and backplane.

Artesyn Embedded Technologies Launches Two New Wide-Range Input DC-DC Converters for Power Amplifier Applications

Artesyn Embedded Technologies has announced the launch of two new families of fully-regulated 1/8th brick dc-dc converters specifically designed to supply high density low power radio power amplifier applications, especially small-cell systems. The AVO100 and AVO250 series converters offer power output up to 100 W and up to 250 W respectively, with an extremely wide output voltage range - specified between 18 and 32.5 V - to cover the demands of power amplifer applications. The units accept the telecommunication standard wide input range of 36 to 75 Vdc. These units broaden Artesynâ s portfolio of units aimed specifically at radio frequency (RF) power amplifier applications, with specific focus on the lower power requirements of small-cell systems, which includes the recently announced AVD85, AVE family and AGF800. Above 93% ultra-high efficiency and excellent thermal performance in an operating range of minus 40 to 85 degrees Celsius make them an ideal choice to supply power in wireless communications where the high efficiency is demanded by telecom equipment manufacters and network operators. The AVO250 delivers up to 9 A output current, while the AVO100 provides up to 3.57 A output. A range of special features makes Artesyns new AVO100 and AVO250 series converters easy to design and deploy, including wide input range, optimization for conduction cooling, low ripple and noise, fixed switching frequency, high capacitive load capability, pre-bias start-up capability, output voltage remote sense. All variants are fitted with through hole terminations. The two new converters are protected against overcurrent, over-temperature and over-voltage conditions.

Artesyn Embedded Technologies Announces the ATCA-7480

Artesyn Embedded Technologies announced the ATCA-7480, a new packet and server processing AdvancedTCA(R) (ATCA(R)) blade featuring dual Intel(R) Xeon(R) E5-2600 v3 processors, also announced by Intel. The power of the new Intel Xeon processor family combined with the blade's high speed data paths between processors, up to 512 GB DDR4 memory and I/O enables short response times for database access and accelerated pattern matching, and can also help optimize routing decisions in virtualized network environments. Artesyn's optional hardware accelerators, directly connected to the processors, can accelerate encryption/decryption algorithms and can greatly enhance throughput of encrypted data in security applications. Cost sensitive applications will benefit from the sixteen memory sockets, which means a developer can use lower cost, lower capacity DIMMs for applications that don't require the full 512 GB potential memory capacity. Using the recently announced Intel(R) XL710 network interface controllers, the ATCA-7480 features an Artesyn QuadStar(TM) backplane interface consisting of four 40G Ethernet networks that connect all the blades in a system. System integrators have the choice of combining channels to create different redundant and non-redundant topologies, depending on the application bandwidth and availability requirements. By integrating multiple ATCA-7480 blades with up to four 40G hub blades into a single shelf, applications can benefit from aggregate bandwidth up to 1 Tb/s in an appropriate ATCA shelf, such as Artesyn's Centellis(TM) 8000. Also, the high thermal and cooling capability of Artesyn's Centellis 8000 system, up to 600 W per slot, enables users to specify higher performance processsors or more cores on the ATCA-7480 blade, meaning up to 28 cores per slot and up to 336 cores per ATCA shelf. The ATCA-7480 blade includes enabling software for Artesyn's SDN/NFV solutions, including support for Intel DPDK-accelerated OpenVSwitch, OpenFlow and OpenStack plug-ins for managing virtualization services on the computing platform. The blade will also support Wind River's Carrier Grade Communications Server, a fully integrated and feature-complete software platform that enables an NFV infrastructure to achieve the ultra-reliability and high performance mandated for telecom networks.
