“Another blog about FPGA Development Kits? Again? Come on Samtec! Put something else up on the blog!” Umm . . . not today. Sorry!
That quote may, or may not, be a comment Samtec bloggers have heard before. In any case, readers of the Samtec blog know FPGAs are a constant topic,
Why? FPGA-based solutions combine flexibility and high-speed performance in small form factors. They are found in any number of unique applications. In both cases, these are common traits of Samtec interconnect solutions.
REFLEX CES Sargon Stratix® 10 FPGA FMC+ DevKit
The Stratix® 10 FPGA FMC+ Instant Development Kit provides developers the best Out-Of-The box experience, combining the Best-In Class compact hardware platform with the most efficient intuitive software environment.
Its unique install and GUI interface allows an immediate start, and its reference designs enable fast turn-around designs, shortening and securing developments.
Target markets include High Performance Computing and IP & ASIC Prototyping. For more information on this platform, please click here.

Samtec’s 14 Gbps FireFly FMC Module attached directly to the Sargon 10 platform.
Samtec’s 14G FireFly FMC module provides up to 140 Gbps full-duplex bandwidth over 10 channels from an FPGA to an industry-standard multi-mode fiber optic cable.
The FireFly optical engines provide adjustable power levels to support cable lengths up to 100 m. The module supports Data Center, High Performance Computing and FPGA-to-FPGA protocols including Ethernet, InfiniBandTM, Fibre Channel and Aurora.
REFLEX CES XpressGX Stratix® 10 Development Platform
The XpressGX S10-FH200G and the XpressSX S10-FH200G are full height PCIe Network Processing boards, featuring the Intel® Stratix® 10 FPGA with support for up to 200G Ethernet
Target markets include Data Center and Cloud Computing, Finance, High Performance Computing, Military & Defense, Broadcast and Video. For more information on this platform, please click here.
Samtec and Reflex CES both recently attended SC18 in Dallas, TX. In the video below, Matt Burns and Dan Negvesky discuss a Samtec ECUE series FireFly Micro Flyover Cable Assembly on the XpressGX platform.
FireFly Micro Flyover System is the first interconnect system that gives a designer the flexibility of using micro footprint high-performance optical and low-cost copper interconnects interchangeably with the same connector system.
FireFly copper and optical cable systems provide the flexibility to achieve higher data rates to 28 Gbps and/or greater distances by flying data over lossy PCB, simplifying board design and enhancing performance.
