AdvancedMC™ / MicroTCA™

Advanced MC / MicroTCA from Southco

AdvancedMC™ and MicroTCA™ have provided a more affordable solution in a commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) system. As the only PICMG member company devoted exclusively to access hardware and ejector solutions – and one who is active in the standards committee – Southco has developed a full array of products to comply with PICMG standards.

  • New flush AMC Module handle prevents snagging wires and damage to handle
  • AMC Module handles offer positive detent in three distinct positions
  • Light pipe brackets snap easily and snugly into faceplate
  • AMC Carrier handles stow away tightly and have sliding handle tip for more intuitive operation

Southco's AMC Module handles lock mezzanine cards securely in place when closed, and provide for automatic microswitch disengagement when unlatched. Light Pipe Brackets identify the operating status of the module and its corresponding microswitch through the use of color-coded status LEDs visible from the front of the module faceplate.
