BittWare S4-AMC Altera Stratix IV GX AdvancedMC

BittWare S4-AMC Altera Stratix IV GX AdvancedMC with Optional VITA 57 FMC for I/O



BittWare S4-AMC Altera Stratix IV GX AdvancedMC with Optional VITA 57 FMC for I/O

Based on Altera’s Stratix IV GX FPGA, BittWare’s S4-AMC (S4AM) 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. The S4AM features a high-density, low-power Altera Stratix IV GX FPGA designed specifically for serial I/O-based applications, creating a completely flexible, reconfigurable AMC. Providing enhanced flexibility is the VITA 57-compliant FMC site, which features 8 SerDes, 80 LVDS pairs, and 6 clocks directly to the FPGA. BittWare’s ATLANTiS FrameWork, in conjunction with the FINe III Host/Control Bridge, greatly simplifies application development and integration of this powerful board. The board also provides an IPMI system management interface, a configurable 15-port AMC SerDes interface supporting a variety of protocols, and a front panel 4x SerDes interface supporting CPRI and OBSAI. Additionally, the board features 10/100 Ethernet, Gigabit Ethernet, 2 banks of DDR3 SDRAM, 2 banks of QDRII+ SRAM, and Flash memory for booting the FPGAs and FINe.

  • VITA 57 FMC site for I/O and processing expansion
  • High density Altera Stratix IV GX supported by BittWare’s ATLANTiS™ FrameWork
  • BittWare’s FINe™ III Host/Control Bridge provides control plane processing and interface
  • Fully connected to AMC (16 ports SerDes, 4 ports GPIO)
  • I/O includes 10/100/1000 Ethernet, SerDes, LVDS, RS-232, and JTAG
