Readers of the Samtec blog are familiar with the benefits of FMC and FMC+. These popular interfaces define a compact electro-mechanical expansion interface for a daughter card to an FPGA baseboard or other device with re-configurable I/O capability.
VITA 57.1 has been around for some time. It supports 10 full-duplex transceivers running at 10 Gbps. The new VITA 57.4 standard defines two new connectors. Combined, they offer 32 full-duplex transceivers running at 28 Gbps.
New FMC/FMC+ products are continually introduced to the market. Targeted industries include Datacom, Broadcast, Aerospace/Defense, Industrial
High-speed optical communications are a necessary feature for many applications. TechwaY – based in Villebon-sur-Yvette, France – has developed a new FMC+ module for extended temperature applications.
The TechwaY Tiger FMC+ takes advantage of optical advances that are ongoing in FMC+ technologies. The TigerFMC+ has become an essential product within the mil/aero industry. It represents a next-generation solution for rugged, extended-temp on-board optical transceivers.
The TigerFMC+ features 12 full duplex links at a rate of up to 14 Gbps.
TigerFMC+ uses Samtec’s FireFly™ optical engines to achieve
The TigerFMC+ is fully VITA 57.4 compliant, ready-to-use and an easy-to-use platform. It offers easy integration with FPGA development or even within VPX systems.
Production-Grade FMC+ Solution
Samtec has developed numerous FireFly FMC and FMC+ development kits. These are specifically targeted for evaluation and development of the FireFly platform in prototype systems.
The TechwaY Tiger FMC/FMC+ solutions offer robust add-in cards for end market products. This is one of a number of solution systems designers can use for production-grade, extended-temp optical FMC/FMC+ applications.
