Carrier boards provide over 693,000 logic cells
The latest two Virtex-7 FPGA carriers, from VadaTech, which come in the AMC format have been annouced. The carriers utilise the 690T device providing over 693,000 logic cells and 3600 DSP slices. The AMC527 has three banks of 114Mb QDR-II memory and the AMC516 has banks of 64- and 16-bit DDR3 memory and an on-board P2040 PowerPC.
The carriers have a slot to accept an FPGA Mezzanine Card per VITA 57. Both modules have a clock and jitter cleaner for high signal quality. The boards meet the AMC.1, AMC.2 and AMC.4 specifications. VadaTech also provides a Virtex-7 FPGA carrier with a 2000T version device and another 690T grade in a dual FMC carrier.
