CommAgility processing module adds flexible RapidIO to increase bandwidth

High performance DSP in AMC form factor

Loughborough, UK, October 17th, 2017 – CommAgility, a Wireless Telecom Group company (NYSE MKT: WTT), today announced theAMC-4C6678-SRIO, a high performance DSP processing module in the compact Advanced Mezzanine Card (AMC) form factor.

The new board is an update of CommAgility’s previous AMC-4C6678, and adds 20Gbps Gen2 RapidIO (SRIO) to an AMC.4 compliant backplane, to increase bandwidth and flexibility. RapidIO complements the module’s full Gigabit Ethernet infrastructure.

“By adding RapidIO, the AMC-4C6678-SRIO module increases the options for fast, flexible, IO,” said Edward Young, Vice President and General Manager at CommAgility. “Our lead customer for the card is using it alongside other CommAgility RF and DSP AMCs in a high performance specialised LTE application.”

The AMC-4C6678-SRIO offers a wide range of connectivity to the backplane and front panel. The RapidIO and Gigabit Ethernet connectivity use on-board switches for maximum flexibility and access to all DSPs on the module.

The AMC-4C6678-SRIO provides four TMS320C6678 fixed- and floating-point octal core DSPs from Texas Instruments (TI) running at 1.25 GHz, giving a total performance of 640 GFLOPS and 1280 GMACS. It is ideal for a range of high performance DSP applications, including wireless telecoms, image sensor processing, transcoding and stepper control.

 

The software available for use with the module includes full board support libraries and an IP stack with Telnet/TFTP for Ethernet-based board control and upgrade. Additional debug support is provided via on-board serial port connectors, plus RS-232 and JTAG debug via the CommAgility AMC-BB Debug Breakout Board.

The new module is a compact full-size, single width PICMG AMC.0 R2.0 AMC, and is suitable for use in both ATCA carriers and MicroTCA chassis. It can also operate standalone, with suitable power and cooling. A range of build options is available, and further customisation is possible in volume, to enable the best technical and commercial fit to a customer application to be achieved.

The AMC-4C6678-SRIO is available now.
