The AM4022 is a highly integrated CPU board implemented as a Single Midsize or Full-size Advanced Mezzanine Card (AMC) for ATCA and MicroTCA applications. The design is based on the 3rd Generation Intel® Core™ i7 processor platform combined with the mobile Intel® QM77 Express Chipset. The board supports the Intel® Core™ i7-3612QE (2.1 GHz Quad Core) and the Intel® Core™ i7-3555LE (2.5GHz Dual Core) processors in 22 nm technology in a BGA package. Other processors are available on request. The processor and the memory are soldered on the AM4022 which results in higher Mean Time Between Failures (MTBF) and a signifi cant improvement in cooling.

The AM4022 includes up to 8 GB, dual-channel Double Data Rate (DDR3) memory with Error Checking and Correcting (ECC) running at 1600 MHz. The graphics and memory controller is integrated in the processor. One quad Gigabit Ethernet controller directly connected to the processor ensures maximum data throughput between processor and memory. The AM4022 can be equipped optionally with an up to 64 GB NAND Flash memory module which can be screwed on the AM4022.

Supporting the PICMG sub-specifi cations AMC.1/.2/.3 the AM4022 ensures a comprehensive set of interconnecting capabilities. The AM4022 is available with two front panel versions, one with a high-resolution DisplayPort and one with a COM port. Further interfaces include one USB 2.0 host interface and two Gigabit Ethernet ports to the front as well as a variety of high-speed interconnect topologies to the system, such as Dual Gigabit SERDES connection and Dual Serial ATA storage interface in the Common Options Region, two x4 or one x8 PCI Express in the Fat Pipes Region, and various interfaces in the Extended Options Region available on request – among them SATA, USB, DisplayPort.

The careful design and selection of high temperature resistant components together with the elaborated heat sink construction ensures a high product reliability. A front panel design according MicroTCA.1 (on request) provides shock & vibration resistance in demanding environmental conditions.
