Dual 6670 AMC

MicroTCA / AMC-Module with two quad-core DSP TMS320C6670 from Texas Instruments. Designed for Software defined radio, LTE, LTE-A applications.

Key features:

  • AMC Module in single width and full size format
  • 2 Texas Instruments TMS320C6670 DSPs
  • 2 GB DDR 3 RAM
  • Xilinx Spartan 6 for system configuration
  • Reference and clock generation on board
  • PCIe, SRIO and Ethernet fully configurable via switches
  • Hyperlink interface for data transfer between both DSPs

The AMC module carries two high performance Multicore DSP TMS320C6670 from Texas Instruments and one Xilinx Spartan-6 FPGA. The compact module with AMC form factor single width / full heigth has been designed for development of next generation radio interfaces like LTE and LTE advanced. The module can be used within MicroTCA or ATCA systems as well as standalone.
The Dual TMS320C6670 AMC module platform is well suited for all applications which require high bandwidth real-time processing. It has been designed for implementation of 3G LTE downlink and uplink layer 1 and layer 2 processing as well as Higher layer decoding.
