How Does the FMC (FPGA Mezzanine Card) Standard Measure up Against the PMC/XMC Format for Embedded Defense/Aerospace Applications?
FMCs promise to do for FPGA based solutions what PMC and XMC did for embedded CPU based systems. However, FMC is not really competing with PMC or XMC, but actually complements it, particularly for high bandwidth, low latency applications.
High-volume, optimized silicon forms the heart of all the latest 4G and LTE equipment designs including cell phones, data cards, and other high-end mobile wireless products. Making 4G work is a tough design problem. This white paper shows you how to recognize and avoid the pitfalls associated with lTE baseband development.
FPGAs are truly an integral part of the latest generation of software radio products. Not only are they being used with traditional digital signal processing algorithms but also in the management of data acquisition, buffering, triggering and timing aspects of high-performance real time systems.
