WORLD-CLASS MANAGEMENT COMPONENTS

FOCUSED. DEPENDABLE. PROVEN.

VITA PRODUCTS

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.

PIGEON POINT CHASSIS MANAGEMENT MEZZANINE SOLUTION

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.

The Pigeon Point Chassis Management Starter Kit minimizes your chassis development effort and includes:

  • BENCH TOP HARDWARE Immediate hands-on familiarization and "known-good" reference as you bring up your chassis
  • REFERENCE SCHEMATICS ChMM carrier schematics as starting point for your custom carrier design; optionally, schematics of the ChMM itself can be licensed
  • FIRMWARE MODIFICATIONS Adjustments to the Chassis Adaptation Layer in the Pigeon Point Chassis Manager for your chassis
  • COMPREHENSIVE DOCUMENTATION Covers hardware and firmware; targets both the chassis developer and chassis user
  • ONE YEAR OF TECHNICAL SUPPORT Both hardware and firmware; includes schematic review of your design after you have integrated the PPS-supplied schematic

PIGEON POINT BOARD MANAGEMENT REFERENCE SOLUTION

This Pigeon Point Board Management Reference (BMR) solution includes schematics, FPGA design and firmware source code, ready for easy and quick integration with your VPX module or other FRU. The highly-integrated core silicon in the solution is a SmartFusion® intelligent mixed signal FPGA.


This solution leverages Pigeon Point's leadership and history in similar PICMG solutions by including support for two key PICMG specifications, HPM.1 and HPM.2. HPM.1 defines an implementation-independent IPMC firmware upgrade architecture that is now essentially

universally implemented across AdvancedTCA IPMCs. HPM.2 defines LAN-attached IPMCs that can leverage an existing on-module LAN connection to provide a much faster link for management traffic, augmenting System IPMB.


The Pigeon Point Board Management Starter Kit minimizes your management controller development effort and includes:

  • BENCH TOP HARDWARE Immediate hands-on familiarization and "known-good" reference as you bring up your module or other intelligent FRU
  • REFERENCE SCHEMATICS Ready for integration with the schematics of your board
  • REFERENCE FPGA DESIGN Usable as is or with added custom logic
  • COMPLETE FIRMWARE SOURCE CODE Designed for easy configuration to the specifics of your VPX module
  • COMPLETE GNU TOOL CHAIN Includes source code; supports Cortex-M3 in your management controller
  • COMPREHENSIVE DOCUMENTATION Covers hardware and firmware; includes customization and bring up guidance
  • ONE YEAR OF TECHNICAL SUPPORT Both hardware and firmware; includes schematic review of your board design
