Motorola Lands First Design Win for MicroTCA Platform

Motorola announced the industry's first design win based on the MicroTCA specification for communications computing applications.

MicroTCA is a specification managed by the PCI Industrial Computer Manufacturers Group (PICMG), also the driving force behind AdvancedTCA and Advanced Mezzanine Cards (AdvancedMC) specifications. It uses the hot-swap and switch fabric capabilities within the AdvancedMC specification to define a modular scaleable computing platform that is cost-effective and can also address applications that require up to 5NINES service availability.

Hypercom Corp., which specializes in high security electronic transaction solutions, will integrate Motorola's Centellis 1000 series communications server into transaction network products that will be used to transport point-of-sale (POS) transactions globally.

Motorola said the use of the Centellis 1000 series for the high security transport of electronic payments marks a new application for the MicroTCA standard.
