Motorola Cites Sales of MicroTCA System Products

Motorola announced $1 million in sales for its MicroTCA system product. The companies will integrate Motorola's MicroTCA core communications server technology into development systems to serve markets such as telecom access, military communications and diagnostic equipment for the healthcare industry.

"The availability of communications servers based on open standards such as MicroTCA is accelerating the shift from the old supply chain model -- where OEMs supplied everything from boards to fully integrated applications -- to a model with systems integrators taking on much of the development previously kept in-house," said Paul Virgo, director of MicroTCA marketing, Embedded Communications Computing, Motorola.
