Advanced Mezzanine Card TM

High performance signal processing AMC card for 4G wireless baseband and test equipment solutions, powered by the latest TI TMS320C6616 DSPs plus a Xilinx Virtex-6 FPGA. It is ideal for LTE and LTE Advanced eNodeB and wireless test and other high performance applications. An IDT CPS-1848 Gen2 SRIO switch provides 20Gbps per port Serial RapidIO infrastructure.

Standard board has 3 front panel SFP+ optical interfaces that link directly to the DSP AIF2 for CPRI or OBSAI. Alternative build options are SFP+ interfaces to the FPGA, or dual mini-SAS connectors for up to 40 Gbps of front panel I/O.
