BittWare D4-AMC Dual Altera Stratix IV FPGA AdvancedMC with VITA 57 Site

BittWare D4-AMC Dual Altera Stratix IV FPGA AdvancedMC with VITA 57 Site


BittWare D4-AMC Dual Altera Stratix IV FPGA AdvancedMC with VITA 57 Site

BittWare’s D4-AMC (D4AM) features the I/O processing power of two Altera Stratix IV FPGAs. The D4AM is a mid- or full-size, single wide AdvancedMC that can be attached to AdvancedTCA carriers or other cards equipped with AMC bays, and used in MicroTCA systems. An Altera Stratix IV GX FPGA paired with a Stratix IV E make the D4AM an extremely high-density, flexible board. The FPGAs are connected by two full-duplex 2 GByte/sec lanes of parallel I/O for data sharing. Each FPGA supports BittWare’s ATLANTiS FrameWork to greatly simplify application development and integration. Providing enhanced flexibility is a VITA 57-compliant FMC site, which connects directly to the Stratix IV E FPGA for LVDS and to the Stratix IV GX for SerDes. The board also provides an IPMI system management interface and a configurable 18-port AMC SerDes interface supporting a variety of protocols. On-board memory includes up to 1 GByte of DDR3 and 128 MBytes of Flash, and Ethernet is available via the AMC front and rear panels.

  • VITA 57 FMC site for I/O and processing expansion
  • Dual FPGAs: Altera Stratix IV E and Stratix IV GX supported by BittWare’s ATLANTiS™ FrameWork
  • BittWare’s FINe™ III Host/Control Bridge provides control plane processing and interface
  • AMC I/O: 18 ports SerDes, 1 port GigE
  • Additional I/O: 10/100 Ethernet, 16 GPIO, RS-232, and JTAG
