NAMC-ZYNQ-FMC: FMC Carrier AMC with Xilinx ZYNQ-7000 FPGA

AMC for data acquisition & signal processing applications and computing nodes based on MicroTCA and AdvancedTCA

discontinued ! - replacement product: NAT-AMC-ZYNQUP-FMC

The NAMC-ZYNQ-FMC is an AdvancedMC (AMC) featuring a Xilinx ZYNQ®-7000 FPGA and an FPGA mezzanine card (FMC) slot. This single-width, mid-size AMC is designed for data acquisition and processing applications and computing nodes. The ZYNQ-7000 FPGA provides the software programmability of an ARM®-based processor with the hardware programmability of an FPGA, enabling key analytics and hardware acceleration while integrating CPU, DSP, ASSP, and mixed signal functionality on a single device.

This module combines that performance with the ability to add functionality through a wide range of off-the-shelf FMCs, including analog-to-digital and digital-to-analog converters, digital I/O and RF modules. N.A.T. can also customize this module to suit your application.
