The NATIVE-C1 offers the performance benefit of MicroTCA in a space-saving horizontal-mounted 1U height. Six AdvancedMC (AMC) slots offer users the flexibility to configure for a wide range of applications, enterprise, industrial control, telecom, wireless, and others. The unique card guide design of the NATIVE-C1 eases the insertion/removal of AMC cards. The replaceable backplane improves the serviceability of the system. The NATIVE-C1 equips with higher performance cooling unit – over 100 CFM of airflow though the chassis – for better thermal profile.
