Metlino is an extension for a MCH which provides an FPGA with connection to each AMC module in the crate through MCH tongue 3. It also provides an FMC LPC slot and two VHDCI connectors. Metlino is designed to work with NAT MCH v3.5.
Make sure to check if daughterboard connector is mounted on your MCH.
