VadaTech, a manufacturer of embedded boards and complete application-ready platforms, is now offering a new data processor that meets the MicroTCA.4 specification with a rear I/O interface. The board is intended for several High Energy Physics applications such as cavity field stabilization and standing-wave linear accelerators, as well as other systems requiring high speeds DSPs and low latency.
The CM045 data processing AMC comes in the double module, mid-size format and features a high-performance Kintex-7 FPGA with x4 PCI Gen 3 signalling across the fat pipes. The module provides processing power, data memory, communication links, and reference clock signals. The CM045 also has 16 GB of DDR3 memory, 8 SFP+ ports via the front panel, and routes 4 low latency signals to the RTM. Another advantage of the CM045 is it provides a convenient upgrade path with in-system firmware updating using IPMI and a fast serial link.
VadaTech offers the full MicroTCA.4 ecosystem, including chassis, power modules, MCHs, RTMs, and a wide range of AMCs. The company’s AMCs for MicroTCA.4 include processors, FPGAs, A/D and D/A converters, data processors and down-converters.
