AMC-V5Fe mezzanine card

CommAgility has released the AMC-V5Fe a mid-size advanced mezzanine card (AMC) that includes a high-speed PCIe interface and a Xilinx Virtex-5 FPGA, targeting industrial, scientific and telecoms applications.

High processing power is delivered by a Xilinx Virtex-5 LX110T FPGA. This configures and boots from flash on reset, using one of four selectable configuration images which are customer-programmable and can be updated over Ethernet. The FPGA is fully customer configurable.

For maximum flexibility, a range of I/O is provided, including CPRI and OBSAI optical links for wireless radios, base stations under test or other optical data links such as SRIO. Advanced clock recovery and synchronization options include GPS clock sync, avoiding the need for a separate card in the system.

The module is available as a mid or full-size AMC depending on configuration. A mezzanine site allows selected customers to add custom I/O or processing to the board if required.

A range of build options are available and further customization is possible in volume. The module has been widely interoperability tested with other manufacturers' chassis, MCH and ATCA carriers.

The AMC-V5Fe is available now. Extensive software and firmware library support enables OEMs to port application code quickly, reducing time to market.
