CommAgility-AMC-3C87F3

Overview 

The CommAgility AMC-3C87F3-GPS is a highly integrated single width, full-size Advanced Mezzanine Card targeted to the latest wireless baseband applications. A total of nine 1 GHz DSP cores and a Xilinx Virtex-5 FPGA allow an application to be partitioned and optimized for most effective use of system resources.
 
The three SFP sockets support CPRI/OBSAI antenna interfaces, allowing direct connection to Remote Radio Heads for 3 sector operation. Timing synchronization is provided by an integrated GPS receiver with an optional OCXO for improved holdover performance. Timing can also be sourced or driven via the AMC clocks or an optional front panel SMB connector.
