Advanced mezzanine card addresses high bandwidth networks

Exploiting the multi-core performance of Tilera’s Tile-GX72 processor, the AMC741 is the latest advanced mezzanine card (AMC) from VadaTech.

The AMC741 is intended for use in packet filtering, intelligent networking, multimedia, video transcoding and cloud applications.

The GX72 device includes 72 identical processor cores (or tiles) interconnected with Tilera’s iMesh on-chip network, making it particularly suitable for high bandwidth networks. Each tile consists of a full-featured, 64-bit processor core as well as L1 and L2 cache and a non-blocking Terabit per second switch. The high processing density and high internal bandwidth of the GX72CPU make it well suited to intensive computing tasks in data centres and enterprise networks.

The AMC741 provides four 10GbE front-panel ports via LC style connectors, making it suitable for network-centric sensor processing applications. The unit includes IEEE 1588v2 precision timing controller support, which provides precision one nanosecond granularity packet timestamping for signal encoding.

The AMC741 is available in a mid-size AMC format and can be integrated into a 1U chassis.
