Performance Technologies has unveiled AMP5071, its newest member of IPnexus MicroTCA systems. According to the company, AMP5071 allows developers to have flexible options while designing communication systems for various domains.

More often than not, embedded engineers will have to integrate various technologies from multiple vendors into a working prototype before starting the development of a new product. This consumes lots of time and energy and the launch of products get delayed. Also, the developers do not have many options when it comes to designing the product.
With the help of the new AMP5071, embedded engineers can start their new product development faster as it is integrated and operational right out of the box. The system is well suited for various types of environments such as WiMAX gateways, LTE infrastructure equipment, radar gateways, weather alert systems, enterprise VoIP/SIP servers, transportation network equipment, and scientific compute and monitoring systems.
“Our integrated platforms of hardware and fully developed Linux software enable system integrators and OEMs to more rapidly and cost-effectively design, develop, and deploy their next generation, IP-based communication systems,” said Tony Romero, senior product manager at Performance Technologies. “This complete and tightly integrated approach has the potential to provide significant cost-savings in the project development phase of new, leading-edge communication solutions.”
The new AMP5071 provides developers with a choice of either selecting an Intel Core 2 Duo processor, or a Freescale MPC8641D dual-core 1 GHz PowerPC processor. Also, to meet a wide range of IP-based communications design criteria, more AMC modules for I/O, storage, and compute functions can be easily configured and integrated into the system.
The company recently announced the availability of NexusWare SIP - a Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) stack for the management of multimedia sessions and calls. NexusWare SIP is delivered as an installable software package and is compliant with specification RFC3261 for SIP to ensure interoperability and effortless integration. Also, NexusWare SIP facilitates the quick development of applications that support a wide range of next-generation IP network functions.
