A new Advanced Mezzanine Card (AMC) carrier for an FPGA Mezzanine Card (FMC) per VITA-57 allows users to utilize the popular FMCs within the AMC format of the MicroTCA architecture. Compliant to AMC.1, AMC.2 and AMC.4, the AMC515 Carrier for FMC from Vadatech features a Virtex-7 chip in a 1925 package. Multiple AMC carriers can be used in a system holding different FMCs, providing a wealth of serial protocol options and performance features. The FPGA interfaces directly to Ports 4-11 and to the CLK signals, and allows protocols such as PCIe, SRIO and XAUI to be programmed or re-configured. The onboard QorIQ pin peripheral controller (PPC) runs at 1.0 GHz with 2 Gbyte of DDR3 memory at 64-bit wide. This allows for 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 onboard jitter clock cleaner. The AMC carrier for FMC also has 8 Mbyte of boot Flash and up to 32 Gbyte of user Flash. Other features include a Serial over LAN with hardware RNG (Random Number Generator) for secure sessions and RoHS compliance.
