SE200 SOM PCIe carrier

Solar Express 200 (SE200)  is x8 Gen3  PCIe carrier board with two SoM-PF m(System on Module) sites. The 2 SoMs that can be supported on this carrier are SoM-PF1 and PF2 which are based on MPF500-1FCG1152 and  MPF300T-1FCG784E respectively. Site 1 is typically designed for SoM-PF1 but if SoM-PF2  is plugged into that position then only only PCIe, Firefly, SFP+ and 4 lanes of high speed serial links for FMC interface will be available. The board is designed for development purposes and plugs into a PC’s PCIe slot and powered by PCIe interface. An FMC slot, SFP+ module, x2 Samtec FireFly, USB and other peripherals are available on the carrier card.
