MicroTCA.4 (Physics)

The DAMC-FMC20 is a cost-efficient FPGA mezzanine card (FMC) carrier designed according to MTCA.4. It is equipped with two Spartan-6 FPGAs. The carrier simultaneously supports one low pin count and one high pin count FMC module. One FPGA allows serial high-speed communication (PCIe, RTM, Backplane, FMCs). The other FPGA allows implementing large signal processing algorithms. The carrier supports one serial link (GTP)
for each FMC module and in addition an extra 12V power connector for high current FMC applications. It provides one PCIe link that is AMC.1 type 1 compliant. The carrier is software-reconfigurable over PCIe and MMC. The AMC ports 12-15 are connected via cross-point switch to the FPGA. The carrier management is compliant to the latest recommendation MMC V1.0. The carrier Zone 3 is compliant to the Class D1.0.
