PICMG Compliant AdvancedTCA Signal Integrity and Thermal Test Fixtures & Testing Services
We make test fixtures for engineers and technicians to verify signal integrity of backplanes and logic cards and measure a systems' thermal and power capabilities. We offer services to help you with your testing too.
Signal Integrity Test Fixtures
Assess the operation of the full Tx and Rx serial channel located anywhere on the ATCA logic card ZD connector.
Measure backplane and device performance across any ATCA switch or mesh backplane architecture.
Calibrate the reference plane at the ATCA ZD backplane interface for highly accurate differential ATCA S-parameters.
F9 Systems Test Fixture Tools Include: the BenchBlade, SignalBlade and the CalBlade
Thermal and Power Test Fixtures
Verify that the chassis, logic card and system configuration(s) meet the PICMG ATCA specification and overal performance and operability goals.
Adjust the thermal and power dissipations to simulate different operating conditions.
Perform an early test of the redundant -48VDC chassis power distribution system at the primary power connection points which are the Power Entry Module (PEM) and backplane.
F9 Systems Test Fixture Tools Include: the ThermalBlade and RTM ThermalBlade
