Dual-core boards for radar applications
Manufacturer of integrated systems, embedded boards, enabling software and application-ready platforms, VadaTech, has announced the AMC535 and AMC536 AdvancedMC FMC carriers based on Altera Arria-10 FPGAs. The AMC535 uses the SX660 so it is SoC enabled with a dual-core ARM Cortex-A9 MPCore, while the AMC536 uses GX1150 providing 1,150 thousand LEs. Both boards come with 16GB of 64-bit wide DDR-4 organised as two banks for high-speed data buffering.
When used with VadaTech’s range of signal conversion and network interface FMCs, these products are suitable for radar, SIGINT, broadcast and backhaul applications.
VadaTech supports multiple open standard form factors, including MicroTCA, cPCI, oVPX and PCI Express. The PCI536 is a PCI Express card that provides the same basic functionality as the AMC536 and benefits from active cooling for both FPGA and FMC. Dedicated dual x6 board-to-board links allow multiple cards to communicate directly without staging data at the host.
