TORNADO-A6678xxx are ultra-high performance AMC-modules with multicore TI TMS320C6678 DSPs, high-capacity Xilinx Virtex-7 and Kintex Ultrascale/Ultrascale+ FPGA, and FMC-site for application adaptive high-speed external I/O using FMC-submodules.

TORNADO-A6678xxx are unified, industry standard, well debugged and documented DSP HW+SFT platforms minimizing total design time and final cost of end user PICMG MicroTCA, AdvancedTCA and standalone/embedded DSP equipment and applications.
