Product Spotlight: Pigeon Point Chassis Management Mezzanine (ChMM) 

These Pigeon Point management components focus on the VPX and ANSI/VITA 46.11 architectures and address the overall chassis level as well as the individual module or Field Replaceable Unit (FRU) level. They benefit from our years of leadership in specification development and interoperability testing, first within PICMG® and then throughout the development of VITA 46.11-2015, which was purposely modeled on the management layer of PICMG’s AdvancedTCA.

These solutions comply with ANSI/VITA 46.11-2015 and use Chassis Management Mezzanines (ChMMs): small mezzanine boards that install in a custom carrier optimized for your chassis architecture. Alternatively, you can license the schematic of the ChMM-700R and integrate that schematic into the design of the board or module that will handle Chassis Manager responsibilities. This ChMM subsystem is pre-loaded with the market-leading Pigeon Point Chassis Manager, producing a ChMM carrier or integrated board or module that implements a Chassis Manager tailored to your chassis, with minimal development effort.
