WHITE PAPER: COTS COMPUTING PLATFORMS

This white paper from Artesyn describes why a growing number of defence, military and aerospace programmes have adopted COTS ATCA® technology as the platform for high performance embedded computing. ATCA platforms are ideally suited for bandwidth-hungry, high-performance applications that cannot allow for downtime such as land- or ship-based control systems and compute farms that combine sensor data or have the need to execute massive calculations.

AdvancedTCA® (or ATCA®) technology has proven itself to be one of the most successful open, bladed architectures for high-performance, ultra-reliable network computing. The PCI Industrial Computer Manufacturer Group (PICMG®) ratified the original ATCA open standard specification 15 years ago, has enhanced it over the years, and continues be an active organization of vendors and users. ATCA has defined a system architecture that supports systems which are compact, light and power efficient—which has become an ideal choice for military, aerospace and security systems.

Since 2012, a number of large military programs have adopted ATCA technology. This paper addresses the forces driving the requirements of high performance embedded computing (HPEC) for military and aerospace applications, including the modular open system approach (MOSA), commercial off-the-shelf (COTS), and reduced size, weight, power and cost (SWaP-C) as it applies to ATCA.
