From Prototype through Production: How an AMC DSP Farm Can Simplify and Accelerate Your Development Efforts
The emergence of ATCA (Advanced Telecom Computing Architecture) and MicroTCA (Micro Telecom Computing Architecture) platforms, and with them, AMC (Advanced Mezzanine Card) solutions, represents a new era in which developers of telecom, military, medical and other processing-intensive applications are able to reduce internal Research and Development efforts, as well as manufacturing and operational expenses, by using commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) building blocks from 3rd party suppliers.
This trend is driving a wave of new systems and architectures for a wide variety of applications: audio and video gateways for 3G, IMS and other networks, media servers, packet-to-packet applications, session border controllers, cryptography, lawful interception, and medical image processing, to name a few.
This paper addresses an internal design conflict typical for engineers in the prototype stage: dealing with high-level system issues without neglecting the detail-level issues necessary to ensure that the system will meet marketing requirements.
