CommAgility introduced the AMC-V6L FPGA processing module. The AMC-V6L AdvancedMC module features the Xilinx Virtex-6 FPGA, 256Mbytes of 16-bit DDR3 SDRAM memory, 128Mbytes of Flash memory, dual Gigabit Ethernet, and two SFP+ sockets. The CommAgility AMC-V6L is sampling now. It is priced at less than $2,000 in 1K+ volume. The AMC-V6L FPGA processing module is ideal for wireless, general-purpose FPGA acceleration and I/O processing applications.
CommAgility introduced the AMC-2C6678 AdvancedMC module. The AMC-2C6678 features a Xilinx LX240T Virtex-6 FPGA, two Texas Instruments (TI) TMS320C6678 digital signal processors (DSPs), Serial RapidIO (SRIO) V2.1, IDT CPS-1848 SRIO Gen2 switch, Gigabit Ethernet interface, three front panel SFP+ optical interfaces, up to 1Gbyte of 64-bit wide DDR3-1600 SDRAM (for each DSP), and dual mini-SAS connectors. The CommAgility module is ideal for satellite communications, video processing and wireless infrastructure. The CommAgility AMC-2C6678 will be sampling in June 2011.
CommAgility introduced the AMC-V6 FPGA-based interface and processing module for wireless baseband applications. The AMC-V6 features a Xilinx Virtex-6 FPGA. The standard variant has a LX240T-2 FPGA. The AMC-V6 can be configured with the LX550T-2 version of the FPGA. The CommAgility AMC-V6 module will start sampling in November. The board is ideal for wireless radio head interfacing applications requiring multiple CPRI links at up to a 10x (6.144Gbps) line rate.
Pigeon Point Systems (PPS) introduced a Module Management Controller (MMC) Board Management Reference (BMR) Starter Kit for AdvancedMC (AMC) modules, which are used in both AdvancedTCA (ATCA) carriers and MicroTCA (uTCA) shelves, collectively referenced as xTCA. The MMC BMR Starter Kit is based on Actel’s SmartFusion intelligent mixed signal FPGAs. SmartFusion devices integrate an FPGA, hard ARM Cortex-M3-based microcontroller subsystem (MSS) and programmable analog.
CommAgility introduced the AMC-V5F-10G high performance FPGA-based interface and processing card for the latest wireless baseband and other demanding processing and optical data interfacing applications. The AMC-V5F-10G is a single width, full-sized Advanced Mezzanine Card with 10Gbaud bandwidth I/O. It features a Xilinx Virtex-5 LX110T FPGA. The AMC-V5F10G is available now. Extensive software and firmware library support enables OEMs to port application code quickly, reducing time to market.
CommAgility launched the AMC-V5Fe mid-size advanced mezzanine card. The AMC-V5Fe includes a high-speed PCI Express interface and a Xilinx Virtex-5 FPGA. The module is ideal for many industrial, scientific, and telecoms applications. The AMC-V5Fe module has been widely interoperability tested with manufacturers’ chassis, MCH, and ATCA carriers. Extensive software and firmware library support enables OEMs to port application code quickly, reducing time to market. The AMC-V5Fe is available now.
