The VT814 is the 2nd in the series of VadaTech's horizontal-mount MicroTCA.4 chassis. The 2U chassis has 6 double module AMC slots and corresponding Rear Transition Modules (RTMs), an MCH slot, and redundant power supplies. The chassis accepts up to two of VadaTech's 500W AC power supplies (UTC017) or 796W (UTC013). Other standard PSUs in the double module/full-size can be utilized.

The 40GbE-capable backplane equalizes clock delays across the AMC slots, minimizing the requirement for skew correction in high-energy physics applications. The VT814 comes with a Telco Alarm and JTAG Switch Module standard.

VadaTech will be releasing a 1U MicroTCA.4 chassis platform in early 2015. The company offers the full ecosystem of MicroTCA.4 and MicroTCA.0 products, including FPGAs, A/D & D/A converters, power modules, MCHs, processors, RTMs, storage modules, graphics modules, chassis platforms, and application-ready platforms.
