AbstractThe CBM experiment is one of the experiments prepared at the FAIR Facility in Darmstadt. The Data Processing Boards (DPB) are an important component of the CBM readout chain. Before the ﬁnal, production versions of DPB may be designed, it is important to create a prototyping platform, to test and select appropriate hardware and ﬁrmware solutions. The Kintex based AMC FMC Carrier (AFCK) board is a versatile and open solution fulﬁlling those requirements, oﬀering conﬁgurable high-speed (up to 10 Gbps) connectivity. The paper describes the AFCK hardware, the ﬁrmware architecture, and the IP cores developed for diﬀerent DPB prototyping tasks. Due to its versatility and openness the AFCK may be reused in other experiments.
