The AMC531 is an AMC FPGA module based on the Altera Stratix IV EP4S100Gx device, compliant to the AMC.1, AMC.2, AMC.3 and/or AMC.4 specification. The unit has an on-board, re-configurable FPGA which interfaces directly to the AMC Ports 4-11, FCLKA, TCLKA, TCLKB, TCLKC, and TCLKD. The FPGA has an interface to DDR3 memory (64-bit wide) with 2GB capacity and an optional three banks of QDR-II+ (18-bit wide). This allows for large buffer sizes to be stored during processing as well as for queuing the data to the host.
The AMC531 has dual 10GbE routed to the front and interfaces with dual SFP+ cages.
The on-board quad-core PPC runs at 1.2GHz with 2 GB of DDR3 and 128 MB of Boot Flash. The PPC has an x4 PCIe interface to the FPGA in addition to its local bus. The PPC has its dual GbE routed to ports 0 and 1 of the AMC which is Muxed with the FPGA.
