Vadatech has announced new Advanced Mezzanine Card (AMC) carrier for a FPGA Mezzanine Card (FMC) per VITA-57. The design allows users to utilize the popular FMCs within the AMC format of the MicroTCA architecture.
Compliant to AMC.1, AMC.2, and AMC.4, the Vadatech AMC515 Carrier for FMC features a Virtex-7 chip in a 1925 package. Multiple AMC carriers can be used in a system holding different FMCs, providing a wealth of serial protocol options and performance features. The FPGA interfaces directly to Ports 4-11 and to the CLK signals and allows protocols such as PCIe, SRIO, XAUI, etc, to be programmed or re-configured. The on-board QorIQ PPC (Pin Peripheral Controller) runs at 1.0GHz with 2GB of DDR3 memory at 64-bit wide. This allows for large buffer sizes to be stored during processing and for queuing to the host.
