AMC-V5F Advanced Mezzanine Card Features Xilinx Virtex-5 FPGA

The AMC-V5F, from CommAgility, is a single width, mid-size Advanced Mezzanine Card that features a Xilinx® Virtex®-5 FPGA. The AMC-V5F module is ideal for the latest wireless baseband applications, and is also suitable for any high-performance processing application, particularly where optical interfacing or SRIO support is required. Dual SFP sockets for optical interfaces to the FPGA are provided on the front panel. These are typically used for industry-standard CPRI or OBSAI links to wireless radios, base stations under test or other optical data links such as Ethernet, Serial RapidIO (SRIO) or Aurora. The AMC-V5F module is sampling to lead customers now. OEM Pricing is below $2600 in 1000+ quantities.

CommAgility AMC-V5F Advanced Mezzanine Card

The AMC-V5F provides advanced clock recovery and synchronisation options including CPRI RE/REC and OBSAI RP3-01, to cover different requirements for wireless base stations and test equipment. For WiMAX base stations, a 1PPS GPS clock sync facility removes the need for a separate card in the system. Ethernet based synchronisation such as IEEE1588 is also possible.

Multiple 10Gbps SRIO and Gigabit Ethernet connections are provided. A Tundra Tsi578 SRIO switch is included as part of a full SRIO infrastructure, providing a dependable low-latency, high bandwidth interconnect.

High processing performance is provided by Virtex-5 FPGAs. In the standard configuration this is the SX95T device, a member of the Virtex-5 SXT FPGA platform optimized for digital signal processing. Other Virtex-5 FPGA options are also available.

Software and firmware support includes a comprehensive ISE/EDK example project and Board Support Library, to enable rapid setup and use of board features and interfaces and fast application code porting.

To reduce risk and time to market, the AMC-V5F is developed for use in OEM products and designed for carrier grade quality and NEBS/ETSI compliance. Build options are available to ensure the best fit for each customer.
