Motorola and Hybricon Collaborate to Develop Proof-of-Concept for Conduction-Cooled MicroTCA Platform


Will Demonstrate Ruggedized MicroTCA Platform for Military, Telecom, Medical and Industrial Applications at MicroTCA Summit

TEMPE, Ariz.– Motorola, Inc. (NYSE: MOT) today announced a joint effort with Hybricon Corporation to develop a proof-of-concept of a MicroTCATM conduction-cooled platform. The collaboration further demonstrates the MicroTCA standard’s viability across a number of industries with demanding environments including military, telecom, medical and industrial.

Motorola and Hybricon’s proof-of-concept will be demonstrated at the first annual MicroTCA Summit being held May 30 – June 1 in Baltimore, Maryland.

The MicroTCA proof-of-concept will be based on Motorola’s off-the-shelf MicroTCA product offerings. Hybricon, a leading backplane designs provider, will add rugged aspects such as enclosure and testing.

“Teaming with Motorola, the leading MicroTCA provider, creates the ideal alliance to address the dynamic and challenging rugged environments that are critical for a number of edge applications in the military, telecommunications and medical industries, to name a few,” said Paul Freve, president of Hybricon. “Due to the architecture’s flexibility, extended capabilities, scaling and high-performance, MicroTCA is not only suitable for multiple applications, it has become the industry’s focused architecture of choice.

“We believe that this proof-of-concept will help dispel the uncertainty in the marketplace that MicroTCA can be ruggedized and shows that MicroTCA is a viable COTS alternative and platform choice for rugged platforms,” said Freve.

“Our collaboration with a leading supplier such as Hybricon opens MicroTCA to a much broader and diverse customer base including similar network centric initiatives in the military, telecommunications and medical industries,” said Paul Virgo, director of MicroTCA marketing, Embedded Communications Computing, Motorola. “We’re breaking the barriers and truly extending the MicroTCA architecture to industries where rugged and extended environmental issues have previously been obstacles. MicroTCA has provided the solution.”
