CommAgility AMC-6487C


The CommAgility AMC-6487C is a single width, full-height Advanced Mezzanine Card offering unprecedented signal processing performance and bandwidth in a highly compact package, for the latest wireless telecom applications. A total of nine 1 GHz DSP cores and a large FPGA allow an application to be partitioned and optimized for most effective use of system resources.

A 10 Gbps RapidIO infrastructure based on the PICMG AMC.4 standard provides the deterministic bandwidth needed for data transfers on and off card. A separate three link full-duplex CPRI/OBSAI compliant antenna interface, with configurable clocking and synchronization, provides additional interface capabilities targeted to wireless radios. An AMC.2 Gigabit Ethernet is provided for OA&M and transport of processed data streams. Additional high-speed, user-configurable I/O is provided to the backplane or optionally front panel using the multiple highs-peed serial ports from the FPGA.
