December 10, 2019 Perry Cohen

VadaTech, a manufacturer of integrated systems, embedded boards, enabling software, and application-ready platforms, announced the release of AMC560 an AMC FPGA Carrier with dual FMC+ (VITA 57.4) interfaces. The carrier is compliant to AMC.1, AMC.2, AMC.3 and AMC.4 specifications.

The unit has a Xilinx UltraScale+ XCZU19EG MPSoC FPGA that provides 1,968 DSP Slices and 1,143k logic cells. The Zynq UltraScale+ EG devices feature a quad-core ARM Cortex-A53 platform running up to 1.5GHz, combined with dual-core Cortex-R5 real-time processors and a Mali-400 MP2 graphics processing unit.

The on-board re-configurable FPGA interfaces directly to the AMC FCLKA, TCLKA-D, FMC+ DP0-16, and all FMC+ LA/HA/HB pairs. The FPGA has an interface to a single DDR4 memory channel (64-bit wide with ECC), which allows for large buffer sizes to be stored during processing as well as for queuing the data to the host. The module has on board 64 GB of Flash, 128 MB of boot flash and a SD Card as an option.
