HENDERSON, Nev., 1 Aug. 2013. Vadatech Inc. in Henderson, Nev., is introducing the AMC515 Advanced Mezzanine Card (AMC) carrier for a FPGA Mezzanine Card (FMC) per VITA-57 for aerospace and defense applications like unmanned vehicles, military ground vehicles, and avionics.

The AMC515 carrier for FMC embedded computing product is designed to enable designers to use the popular FMCs within the AMC format of the MicroTCA architecture.

Compliant to AMC.1, AMC.2, and AMC.4, the Vadatech AMC515 has a Virtex-7 chip in a 1925 package. Several AMC carriers can be used in a system holding different FMCs.

FPGA interfaces to Ports 4-11 and to the CLK signals and enables protocols such as PCI Express, SRIO, XAUI, etc, to be programmed or re-configured. The on-board QorIQ Pin Peripheral Controller (PPC) runs at 1 GHz with 2 gigabytes of DDR3 memory at 64-bit wide. This enables large buffer sizes to be stored during processing and for queuing to the host.

The Vadatech AMC515 comes in the single-width, mid-height (4HP) or full-height (6HP) size. It has an on-board jitter clock cleaner. The AMC carrier for FMC also has 8MB of boot Flash and up to 32 gigabytes of user Flash. Other has include a Serial over LAN with hardware RNG (Random Number Generator) for secure sessions and RoHS compliance.

Vadatech also provides AMC carriers in various configurations; Xilinx and Altera-based, in single width/half height, double width/full height, and double width/mid height. The company also offers AMCs, MicroTCA carrier Hubs (MCH), J-Tag Switch Modules (JSM), Power Modules (PM), Storage, Software, Shelf management, commercial and rugged chassis-level platforms, and application-ready systems in the MicroTCA architecture.
