Make use out of AMC modules without taking on the full cost of MicroTCA architecture

MicroTCA is an extremely versatile technology with many applications. System designers can reduce costs by considering what tradeoffs make sense when it comes to power, cooling, backplane routing and system monitoring. Designers can harness the power and functionality of AMC modules without taking on the full cost of MicroTCA architecture by carefully selecting their feature set.
