Thanks to its close family ties to AdvancedTCA, MicroTCA was endowed with robust management
capabilities right from the start. These capabilities include temperature and voltage monitoring, FRU insertion and removal, and Electronic Keying. MicroTCA adds certain options for management that AdvancedTCA does not offer, which should be exciting
news for anyone designing MicroTCA systems. Dedicated system configuration storage on the shelf, direct cooling and power module management are examples of these features.
