N.A.T. presents new software tools to configure a MicroTCA system

NAT-MCH with new easy to use software configuration tools

(PresseBox) (Sankt Augustin, ) N.A.T. the expert in high performance connectivity products for data and communication solutions today releases the new software tools for its MCH (MicroTCA Carrier Hub) to comfortably and quickly configure MicroTCA systems.

The NAT-MCH is the central switching resource for any MicroTCA system and dedicated to any application in the communication, the aerospace and defence, the medical or the industrial market.

By a built in webserver the NAT-MCH functions for VLAN grouping, PCIexpress up- and downstream, clocking and all other management functions can easily and quickly be configured using any standard webbrowser. This new software tool works in parallel to CLI (command line interface), which is accessible via Telnet or front panel RS232.

In addition to the embedded webserver a host based visualisation tool and GUI named NATView is provided. NATView is Java based and runs on any Java engine of any operating system offering an extended visualisation of the MicroTCA system and its functions likes sensors, alarms and events.

Together with the new software tools the firmware has been upgraded to fully support redundant environments with redundant MCHs and Power Modules. The new firmware also offers access by external system managers via backplane and face plate GbE. However, special care has been taken to also support MicroTCA systems that do not fully comply with the standard.

Both the new software and firmware have been successfully qualified in interoperability tests with all major backplane vendors and AMC and power supply manufacturers.

The NAT-MCH fully complies with the applicable PICMG MicroTCA.x and PICMG AMC.x specifications in their most recent release.
