Pentek Launches Extensive Line of AMC Products for Signal Processing I/O

Pentek has just launched a 16-member family of AMC (Advanced Mezzanine Card) products giving customers instant access to the extensive line of signal processing products in the Pentek catalog.

Pentek is leveraging their modular product architectures to bring a large array of options to market in a very short time. The Pentek 56xxx products fill a major I/O product gap in the AMC ecosystem by offering 16 different modules.

Many new defense programs are evaluating AMCs because of the small form factor packages and chassis. The built-in support for IPMI and the existing infrastructure of modules, systems and software provide a reliable computing platform strategy for many applications. AMCs keep the performance level high while keeping system cost down.

The AMC.1 products are derived from the Pentek Cobalt® product family based on Xilinx Virtex-6 FPGAs with PCI Express Gen. 2 system interfaces; and the Pentek Onyx® product family using Xilinx Virtex-7 FPGAs with PCI Express Gen. 3 interfaces. I/O functionality in the 56xxx family includes analog-to-digital and digital-to-analog converters, multiband digital receivers, upconverters, downconverters and transceivers.

Pentek responded to customer requests by offering its entire line of Onyx and Cobalt products in the AMC form factor, thereby helping customers implement cost-effective systems. The Pentek 56xxx AMC product line opens many new markets for its popular Cobalt and Onyx product families.

AMC is the PICMG specification that defines the small form factor modules. AMC modules can be used directly in a MicroTCA chassis creating a powerful data acquisition and processing system in a small footprint. A summary of the available AMC products today is shown in the nearby table. Additional models are expected to be available in the very near future.
