VadaTech Launches the Industry’s Highest Performance FPGA AMC

Henderson, NV – 18 January, 2016 – VadaTech, a leading manufacturer of embedded boards, enabling software and application-ready platforms, today announced the AMC595, an Advanced Mezzanine Card or AdvancedMC (AMC) based on the Xilinx® Virtex® UltraScale™ XCVU440 FPGA, arguably the highest performance FPGA available today. Aimed at compute-intensive applications such as large scale ASIC prototyping and emulation, the AMC595 builds on VadaTech’s successful portfolio of products based on Xilinx UltraScale FPGAs, which includes single- and dual-FMC carriers, as well as a 56 GSPS ADC module. VadaTech’s lead customer for the AMC595 is using the board for algorithm development and testing prior to deploying in an ASIC for high performance testing of next generation networks, including 5G.

The on-board, re-configurable FPGA is supported by 16 GB DDR4 64-bit wide memory, which allows for large buffer sizes to be stored during processing as well as for queuing the data to the host. The FPGA has a flexible clocking subsystem and direct connections to the backplane to allow multiple FPGAs to interface without needing a switch. In addition to the Virtex UltraScale FPGA, VadaTech’s AMC595 features a 1.2 GHz Freescale QorIQ P2040 processor, based on the Power Architecture, supported by 1 GB of DDR3, 128 MB of Boot Flash and a 32 GB SD card for simplified management and improved usability. The AMC595 is compliant to the AMC.1, AMC.2 and/or AMC.4 specification.

Ian Shearer, head of product marketing for VadaTech and managing director of VadaTech Ltd, said: “The AMC595 provides impressive processing power in a compact and power-efficient module. The first of our Virtex UltraScale products supports ASIC prototyping within the modularity and scalability of MicroTCA, making it a compelling option for next-generation mobile communications developers.”

Tackling verification challenges for PCIe® 5.0

Sponsored by Anritsu

PCIe 5.0 works at 32 GT/s data rate per lane and offers many new features, including support for an alternate protocol, precoding to prevent contiguous burst errors, and link equalization flow enhancements. While these features offer several advantages, they also pose additional challenges for verification engineers. This paper discusses the PCIe 5.0 features and their verification challenges. It also describes a case study on how to address these challenges using a strong verification IP solution.

Why Measure C02 Indoor Air Quality?

Sponsored by Mouser Electronics and Sensirion

The amount of carbon dioxide in the air can be a key indicator in indoor air quality and improving our indoor air quality can have a slew of benefits including increased energy efficiency, increased cognitive performance, and also the reduction of the risk for viral infection. In this episode of Chalk Talk, Amelia Dalton chats with Bernd Zimmermann from Sensirion about the reasons for measuring carbon dioxide in our indoor spaces, what this kind of measurement looks like, and why Sensirion’s new SCD4 carbon dioxide sensors are breaking new ground in this arena.
