Prodrive Technologies’ AMC-XZ7 platform offers flexible, scalable and customizable solutions for all sorts of signal processing.

The AMC-XZ7 is a full-size Advanced Mezzanine Card (AMC) that combines Xilinx’ Zynq-7000 SoC with flexible, high-speed IO options and front panel connectivity. Many interconnect standards are supported, such as 10/40 Gigabit Ethernet, PCI Express, Serial RapidIO, SATA and more, enabling seamless integration within any application that has tight timing requirements.

The combination of general-purpose processing and FPGA based processing in the same SoC enables a wide variety of applications; typical applications include motor control, wireless baseband and small cell, radar beamforming and UAV imaging.



The design of the AMC-XZ7 is modular. Different Zynq-7000 SoC options are supported, as well as different DDR3 memory sizes to tune the device to your needs. The auxiliary interface supports an application specific piggyback for added flexibility.

Front panel connectivity can be tuned to support e.g. analog and digital IO, RS-485, CAN, in addition to SFP+ connectors for integration with peripherals having high-speed IO interfaces. Mid-size and full-size front panel options are supported for integration within ATCA and µTCA appliances.

Firmware and software building blocks

An extensive portfolio of soft IP blocks hook up the FPGA application logic to your system via the AMC connector. Prodrive Technologies’ excellent design services allow you to choose the optimal approach for your design and integration path.

Optimization and customization

If required, Prodrive Technologies can further optimize off-the-shelf solutions offerings, to meet the needs of your applications. Customer-proven examples include: custom connectivity, extended life cycle and warranty, system integration and optimization for density, cost and power.
