NAMC-ARRIA10-FMC FMC Carrier with Intel ARRIA 10 FPGA

The NAMC-ARRIA10-FMC is an AMC module featuring an Intel Arria 10 GX or SX FPGA and an FPGA mezzanine card (FMC) slot to connect MicroTCA systems with FMC modules. Intel Arria® 10 FPGAs deliver massive performance and power consumption improvements compared to prior-generation FPGAs, both midrange and high-end devices. A comprehensive set of advanced power saving features and power-optimized MultiTrack routing and core architecture results in up to 40% lower power compared to the previous generation of mid-range FPGAs and up to 60% lower power compared to the previous generation of high-end FPGAs.

Intel Arria® 10 FPGAs combine up to 1.5M logic elements, high speed SERDES interconnects and dual-core ARM Cortex A9 cores. They deliver 60% higher performance than the previous generation of mid-range FPGAs and 15% higher performance than the fastest previous-generation high-end FPGAs.
