The DAMC-FMC25 is a full-size standard AMC board designed to host up to two High-Pin Count (HPC) FMC mezzanine cards
The DAMC-FMC25 is a general purpose carrier board with the ability to host two FPGA Mezzanine Cards (FMC) with High Pin Count (HPC) connectors. The AMC board is designed as a double-width mid-size MTCA.4 carrier.
A Virtex-5 FPGA allows to perform high demanding computations with a high data throughput between FMCs, uRTM and PCI express on the MTCA backplane. Standard version of the board mounts a Virtex-5 XC5VFX70T (1136-pin) and a Spartan XC6SLX45T (484-pin) FPGAs provided respectively with 256 MB and 128 MB DDR2 memories.
The local DDR2 memories can be used in order to store data that cannot or does not need to be sent via PCI-e during acquisition.

The module management is performed by an ATxmega128A1_AU controller directly interfaced to the AMC backplane with an I2C bus connection.
The DAMC-FMC25 board mount “-2” speed grade Virtex-5 (@ 6.5 Gbps).
Fast links to both FMC slots – i.e. 77 differential pairs and 2 GTX @ 6.5 Gbps on each one – allow to install high performance and high density FPGA Mezzanine Cards – e.g. fast and/or high resolution digitizers or fast links.
Fast links are also dedicated to the MTCA.4 standard use of the board with 42 differential pairs and 2 GTX @ 6.5 Gbps to the uRTM Zone-3 connector.
AMC backplane connections available are Low-Latency Links (4 lanes), PCI-e 1.0 (4 lanes) and MLVDS (4 lanes).
