CommAgility AMC-2C6616 and AMC-2C6670 AdvancedMC Modules

CommAgility introduced the AMC-2C6616 and AMC-2C6670 AdvancedMC modules. The AMC-2C6616 features the TI TMS320TCI6616 System-on-Chip (SoC) base station, and is ideal for LTE wireless base station applications, including development, trials and final deployment in the field. The AMC-2C6670 is based on the TI TMS320C6670 digital signal processor (DSP), and is ideal for high-performance applications in the mission critical, including public safety and defense, medical and high-end imaging and test and automation and other multicore high performance applications. The AMC-2C6616 and AMC-2C6670 will be sampling in January 2011.
