Subject: MTCA4 HW management

Hi all,

I am looking for any existent EPICS support of MicroTCA HW management or any plan for that. I've heard that SLAC and DESY heavily (?) use that platform so far, but there are no EPICS related activities I can find in teck-talks and others.

Currently, my concern is to to maintain all MTCA4 HW (Chassis, Carrier Hub, Backplane, Power Modules, Cooling Units, etc), because MTCA.4 HW is still unstable (I mean comparing with any VME HW (I might be wrong) and ESS will use several hundred MicroTCA Chassis (crate).

This maintenance has the following activities:

  * monitor/change a status of MicroTCA HW though EPICS
  * update/revert the corresponding firmware through EPICS
* all activities are recorded into a EPICS archive service (AA) (it is clear evidence with EPICS)

  So, we can scale this activities up to massive MicroTCA HW easily.

Please let me know if you know much better idea than my naive one, and would you recommend what you're using?


  Thanks,
  Han
