VadaTech: double-module AMC delivers over 100 GFLOPS

VadaTech announces the AMC540, a double-module AMC with Xilinx Virtex-7 XC7VX690T FPGA and dual multicore TI TMS320C667x Digital Signal Processors. An on-board managed switch connects both DSPs and Virtex-7 FPGA to dual GbE base interface on the backplane and dual front-panel RJ-45. The DSPs, which can be optionally TMS320C6670 or TMS320C6678, are connected by HyperLink and have PCIe and SRIO connections to the FPGA. The Virtex-7 FPGA supports up to 24 TX/RX front panel fiber connections.

The TMS320C6678 provides eight C66x processor cores, delivering over 100 GFLOPS of processing for medical imaging, test, and automation, while the TMS320C6670 includes turbo Viterbi and FFT co-processors to support software defined radio (SDR), broadband and wireless communications. The provision of high bandwidth (24 of 10G) front-panel fiber connectivity makes the AMC540 suitable for a wide range of network, communications and particle physics applications.
