DESIGNED FOR TRUE SIGNAL INTEGRITY UP to 25 GBAUD PERFORMANCE

Brockton, MA. – September 15, 2021, Atrenne, A Celestica Company, (TSX:CLS) (NYSE:CLS) today announced a new series of Gen-4/5 OpenVPX backplanes. This series is part of Atrenne’s innovative product family that enables end-to-end solutions for 64/100 Gigabit systems. Atrenne Computing Solutions offers a wide range of standard and custom, high-performance backplanes, including 3U, 6U, and hybrid 3U/6U models.

Atrenne’s Gen-4/5 OpenVPX backplanes are designed to the demanding signal integrity requirements of PCIe Gen4 and 100GbE (100GBASE-KR4) and offer the highest signal integrity (SI) in the industry. By utilizing full three-dimensional electron microscopy (3D EM) field modeling in HFSS™ to develop highly accurate SI models, areas such as return loss, dielectric loss, skin effect loss, and crosstalk have been stabilized in the backplane design. This is a significant advancement in high-volume throughput computing.

“As sensor inputs and signal processing demands increase, so do the data rates of serial switched fabric protocols used for OpenVPX slot-to-slot interconnect planes,” said Jim Tierney, Vice President Defense and Aerospace Systems for Atrenne Computing Solutions, “Our internal testing and modeling research has helped us achieve robust Gen-4/5, 16/25’s Gbaud signaling in OpenVPX systems. Whether it is achieving greater performance through hi-speed backplanes or innovative cooling techniques, Atrenne delivers proven designs that accelerate innovation.”

Atrenne’s Gen-4/5 OpenVPX systems operate on high-performance VITA 46.30 MULTIGIG RT 3 connectors. Multiple backplane profiles are available, including pass-thru backplanes. Atrenne also designs application-specific configurations to meet individual and custom requirements.

Atrenne’s experts will be at AUSA’s annual conference with products. Stop by booth #4225 for a demonstration.

First ATR Chassis Developed With 3D Aluminum Printing Earns Military & Aerospace Electronics Magazine’s 2021 Technology Innovators Award

BROCKTON, Mass., October 6, 2021 – Atrenne Computing Solutions, a Celestica Company, today announced it has won a platinum innovators award for design and testing an aluminum 3D-printed air transport rack (ATR) chassis, which is deployable.  This enables Atrenne to provide program managers with a ruggedized demonstration unit in a matter of weeks after critical design reviews, compared to months for a conventionally designed unit.

The importance of minimizing lead time is significant for land, sea and air applications. Early field demonstration units are invaluable to the end user to allow them to meet critical interim milestones and quickly detect critical integration characteristics with surrounding equipment. The ability to quick test the unit at the design stage and iterate, if needed, assures a seamless field install and integration.

“Atrenne is raising the bar in both technology and methodology for exceeding extreme environmental demands,” said Jim Tierney, VP of Aerospace and Defense. “Our 3D Aluminum ATR offers substantially reduced lead times when compared to conventional braze welding fabrication, with negligible tradeoffs in thermal performance, and the structural and mechanical characteristics are as good or better when subjected to dynamics testing.”

Military & Aerospace Electronics magazine cited the many benefits the Atrenne 3D Aluminum ATR delivers to Atrenne’s customers when it recognized the company with its Platinum 2021 Technology Innovators Award which highlights companies with leading edge military, aerospace, and avionics design solutions.

Atrenne has been designing and manufacturing rugged military systems for the defense industry for nearly 50 years and continues to deliver solutions to the military as quickly as possible through innovative engineering and manufacturing processes.
