  The PCI Express Standard enables one of the highest data transfer rates today. However, with a large number of modules in a MTCA system and an increasing complexity of individual MTCA components along with a growing demand for high data transfer rates to client programs performance of the overall system becomes an important key parameter. Multiprocessor systems are known to provide not only the ability for higher processing bandwidth, but also allow greater system reliability through host failover mechanisms. The use of non-transparent bridges in PCI systems supporting intelligent adapters in enterprise and multiple processors in embedded systems is a well established technology. There the non-transparent bridge acts as a gateway between the local subsystem and the system backplane. This can be ported to the PCI Express standard by replacing one of the transparent switches on the PCI Express switch with a non-transparent switch. Our experience of establishing non-transparent bridging in MTCA systems will be presented.
