The CommAgility AMC-TJ1 is a comprehensive bench-top test harness for AdvancedMezzanine Cards, allowing easy configuration and access to external AMC ports. There are two test slots, with functions as follows:Slot 1 is designed for JTAG testing. All AMC ports (except Ethernet) are loop-back connected on the PCB which is ideal for testing AMCs and their external interfaces in a production environment.
Slot 2 is designed for functional testing. This slot has all AMC ports connected to headers or off-board connectors, e.g. SFP modules for Ethernet, SATA connectors and Infiniband style ports for the fat pipes and extended options. This allows an AdvancedMC module to be fully functionally tested by connecting appropriate cables and equipment to the AMC-TJ1.
Alternatively, by using 2 x AMC-TJ1 and cables, a full back-to-back functional test of two AdvancedMC modules can be performed.
