The AMC524 provides a Direct Digital Synthesizer (DDS) capable of generating a frequency agile analog sinusoidal waveform (up to 1.0 GHz). The chipset includes a PLL for clock cleaning, along with a versatile internal timing and control mechanism. The unit supports fast frequency hopping and a linear sweep mode of frequency, phase or amplitude.

The AMC ports 0-15 are all routed to the FPGA from the AMC connector, providing the user with flexibility to support standard base and fabric interface or custom high-bandwidth interconnects (depending on backplane capabilities). The FPGA is supported by 1 GB FLASH memory for boot image storage and dual banks of DDR3 for local data storage.

TCLK A-D and FCLK are routed to the FPGA via an on-board clock and jitter cleaner. The module supports internal or external clocking. The modules allows for RF Clock synthesis for the DAC and the ADC to come from the front panel or from the on-board wideband PLL.

The AMC524 is available in both air-cooled (MTCA.0 and MTCA.1) and rugged conduction cooled (MTCA.2 or MTCA.3) versions.
