CommAgility introduced the AMC-V7-2C6678 Advanced Mezzanine Card (AMC) module. The AMC-V7-2C6678 features the latest Xilinx Virtex-7 FPGA and two Texas Instruments TMS320C6678 multicore DSPs. It includes Serial RapidIO (SRIO), Gigabit Ethernet and PCI Express. The AMC-V7-2C6678 DSP/FPGA Card is available now. It is ideal for high performance DSP/FPGA processing applications like telecoms and image processing.
Lattice Semiconductor has extended the Serial RapidIO 2.1, Level 1 endpoint core to support 4 x 3.125Gbps. The previous version of the LatticeECP3 FPGA IP core supported 1x and 2x up to 3.125Gbps and 4x up to 2.5Gbps. The Lattice core can be used with the Lattice Advanced Mezzanine Card (AMC) form factor platform. The Serial RapidIO 2.1 IP core and associated AMC platform are available now for evaluation and use.
Lattice Semiconductor introduced the LatticeECP3 AMC evaluation platform for their Serial RapidIO 2.1 endpoint IP core. The LatticeECP3 AMC evaluation platform helps engineers to investigate and experiment with the features of the LatticeECP3 SERDES and SRIO core. The board features a single AMC module card edge interface, common options interface, and a Vita 57.1 FPGA Mezzanine Card (FMC) expansion connector. The evaluation and demonstration platform is based on the Advanced Mezzanine Card (AMC) form factor. The Serial RapidIO 2.1 IP core and AMC platform are available now.
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.
