Description

The NAT-AMC-ZYNQUP-FMC is an FMC carrier board in AMC form factor with integrated hardware elements, which make it the ideal platform for sophisticated wireless, machine vision, and SDR applications.

It 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.
