  • Fully managed, hot swappable RTM

The MIC-5322 is a dual processor Intel® Xeon® 5500-based ATCA blade complementing the single processor MIC-5320 for systems able to cool over 200W per-slot. The underlying architecture and drivers remain identical to the MIC-5320 thereby enhancing performance scalability and streamlining software re-use between blades. The MIC-5322 enables the highest performance available in ATCA form factor with 8-cores and 16-threads of processing power, low DDR3 memory latency, fast PCI Express 2.0 and accelerated virtualization.
The Intel 82599 10 GbE controller plays a key role in end-to-end network performance and throughput, including a 5 Gbps PCI Express 2.0 interface to improve the entire data path as well as multi-core optimized queue support. For fast and secure database applications, the blade supports up to 48 GB of triple channel DDR3 with ECC. Next generation processor readiness offers a smooth upgrade path to future processors supporting more than 4 cores. The MIC-5322 adheres to Advantech's Common rear transition modules (RTM) definition developed to maximize interoperability and re-use between RTM's and ATCA blades. This defines the management interface and RTM port mapping for interconnects such as USB, PCIe, XAUI and SAS and allow RTM re-use among blades to simplify system integration as well as life cycle and upgrade management.
The MIC-5322 provides hot-swappable RTM support for HA needs as well as rear I/O and SAS storage support with RAID via the RTM-5101. Dual bootable USB industrial flash drives add capabilities for emergency and parameters storage, diagnostic routines and minimum kernel needs, whilst a CompactFlash socket is available for True IDE mode flash usage. SoL support is provided on the base fabric and external GbE. HPM.1 based updates are available for all programmable components including rollback support and IPMI controlled BIOS write protect through a single update procedure.
