NAMC-ZYNQ-FMC FMC Carrier with Xilinix ZYNQ-7000 FPGA

AMC module featuring a Xilinx ZYNQ-7000 FPGA and an FPGA mezzanine card (FMC) slot to connect MicroTCA systems with FMC modules. The ZYNQ-7000 FPGA provides the software programmability of a dual-core ARM Cortex A9 processor with the hardware programmability of an FPGA. The NAMC-ZYNQ-FMC from NAT combines performance with the ability to add functionality through a wide range of off-the-shelf FMCs, including analogue-to-digital and digital-to-analogue converters, digital I/O and RFmodules. The SoC interfaces directly to the FMC slot via a high pin-count connector and to the MicroTCA backplane using PCI Express, RapidIO (SRIO) or XAUI (10 GbE).

DDR3 memory is accessible by both the FPGA and processor sections of the SoC allows for large buffer sizes and queuing during processing. The module offers 1 GB 64-bit and 512 MB 32-bit memory banks. The module also features 256 MB NOR quad SPI flash memory for fast random read performance and a MicroSD card slot for storage and application code.
