Fabric Mezzanine Modules
Advantech Fabric Mezzanine Modules (FMM) is a new denominator for personalizing a common platform at the blade level, and they scale extremely well for both I/O and ATCA acceleration functions. For example, the MIC-5333 ATCA blade based on two 8-Core Intel Xeon E5 Series processors houses three FMM sites on the front blade and one on the rear transition module, enabling a wide variety of solutions. Our Fabric Mezzanine Modules provides additional flexibility to ATCA CPU and RTM boards such as 10GE SFP+ port, 40g networking, and VGAserver type graphics module. The FMM specification defines the high speed interfaces and associated FRU management. FMMs are compact -- just 6.4 x 7.5 cm -- and use FMC compliant connectors for high speed differential I/O. Supported by advanced SFP port feature, Fabric Mezzanine Modules products allow users to ensure fast ethernet network and select the appropriate transceiver. Also, co-designed with leading silicon suppliers, Intel Ethernet Controller within our FMM features for I/O virtualization and unified networking. Advantech’s Intel Ethernet Controller and SFP port supported Fabric Mezzanine Module technology offers a small, more power-efficient set of options for Advantech ATCA blade configurations.
