The card has a flexible clock circuit that enables any clock source to be connected to any clock input, including telecom clock, FMC clocks and FPGA. Specifications are very similar to the AMC FMC CARRIER – AFC, the only difference is a faster FPGA from the kintex7 family – Xilinx Kintex-7 325T FFG900 FPGA.

Technical Parameters
