MicroTCA and AdvancedTCA-connector

MicroTCA and AdvancedTCA-connector, belong to the same name as a modular system, the standard of the PICMG exact specifications for the construction of corresponding sub-racks, racks and basic systems. MicroTCA stands for Micro Telecommunications Computing Architecture and was designed as a high-speed system platform that meets the high requirements of the telecommunications industry. And at the same time, can be utilised in less demanding industries.

MicroTCA connectors connect the backplane with the specific modules, they are available in three different versions:

  • MicroTCA connector for direct soldering to the pcb (SMT)
  • MicroTCA connectors with screw-on (compression mount)
  • MicroTCA connectors as press-fit connectors

As a complement to AdvancedTCA, MicroTCA is considered as the standard for high-performance communication server has been developed to respond to the increased traffic. The standardized board format was designed for high-performance applications and prevailed mainly because of its basic connection topologies and management structures.

MicroTCA, on the other hand, is designed for cost-sensitive applications with less power and capacity. AdvancedTCA connectors and MicroTCA connectors differ primarily in the number of power and signal contacts. Bürklin offers connectors, female connectors and male connectors for both systems.
