SKU: NATIVE-mini  /  

The NATIVE-mini is the youngest member of the N.A.T. family of MicroTCA chassis, targeting at cost-sensitive applications like digital video and image editing, automation or electronic signal processing with the need for one or two payload slots only. With its compact dimensions of 260 mm width, 43 mm height (1U) and 302 mm depth the EMV-shielded NATIVE-mini is designed for the insertion of up to two single full-size or mid-size AMC modules (Advanced Mezzanine Card) and therefore aims for applications which require just one or two AMC modules. The integrated "embedded" MCH (MicroTCA Carrier Hub) makes the NATIVE-mini a standard compliant MicroTCA systemproviding an easy migration to larger systems. In relation to the system’s dimensions the eMCH is an optimized version of its bigger family member, the NAT-MCH, taking over monitoring and management of all system components such as the 150W Open Frame power supply (input voltage range 90 - 264 VAC) or the cooling units which ensure in push-pull-configuration a cooling power of 150 W at an operating temperature of +55°C. By error detection and isolation the system management provides the system reliability which MicroTCA is known for.
