CommAgility AMC-D1F1-1200 AdvancedMC Module

The CommAgility AMC-D1F1-1200 is a high-performance mid-size AdvancedMC module that includes a Texas Instruments (TI) TMS320C6455 digital signal processor (DSP) running at 1.2 GHz and a Virtex-4 FX100 FPGA from Xilinx. The AMC-D1F1-1200 module is optimized for applications requiring high-end signal I/O bandwidth in a compact mid-height AMC form factor, such as wireless baseband, image processing, defense, and aerospace. Using the fastest available DSP with a large FPGA enables an application to be balanced and optimized for the most effective use of resources and development time. The AMC-D1F1-1200 module is sampling to lead customers now.

The AMC-D1F1-1200 provides a combination of DSP and FPGA resources, with fast and flexible links to external data and over 256MB of on-board memory. The FPGA is directly connected to the DSP via a high bandwidth, low latency 64 bit, 150MHz local (EMIF) bus to facilitate co-processing. The processor elements are also interconnected by a 10Gbps SRIO infrastructure with external connectivity to an AMC.4 backplane interface and front panel connector. An AMC.2 Gigabit Ethernet interface is also supported. This infrastructure provides unprecedented I/O bandwidth that is superior to competitive products.

For applications requiring custom I/O or specialized additional processing, a mezzanine module can be fitted to the AMC-D1F1-1200. The mezzanine can include front panel connectors as well as direct interfaces to Ethernet, SRIO and the FPGA.

The new module is based on the AdvancedMC embedded standard, making it suitable for use in MicroTCA and AdvancedTCA systems. The product is designed to be used in NEBS and ETSI compliant systems.
