MTCA.4 - modular measurement and control system with sub-nanosecond time synchronization and support for RF applications

Grzegorz Kasprowicz


Abstract—The Micro TCA platform is rapidly developing modular technology for measurement and control systems. There are available versions for laboratories, military and aviation. The newest release of the standard (MTCA.4) supports high frequency RF applications like particle accelerators, radio, telecom and radar. The PERG group together with partners from Europe and Poland takes active part in development process, i.e. implementation of sub-ns synchronization, event and RF distribution system over fibre networks. It enhances significantly capabilities of MTCA platform in distributed measurement systems (i.e. passive radars) and enables fully deterministic operation of hard real
time control systems.
