FMC-GPIO, providing IO interfaces to FPGA boards with HPC or LPC connectors

FMC-GPIO is an FMC module that can act as an IO interface for an FPGA board with HPC or LPC FMC sites.

The FMC-GPIO has a variety of I/O capabilities – 2 x SATA connectors and 4 x 26 pins SDR type connectors that can  be used as a general purpose I/O. Two of the SDR type connectors are on the FMC and 2 are on an auxiliary card which can be inserted in a PC, PXIe or other chassis to make the connectors  accessible through the back panel of the platform used. The connection between the FMC and auxiliary board is through the off-board headers using the flex cables 152660343.

This module is a pass-through unit and the IO voltages can be set by the FPGA core being used.

Features

  • LPC  and HPC (high pin count)
  • SDR1 connector provides 11 differential IO pairs (1 with clock capability) on LA bank (accessible on LPC FMC)
  • SDR2 connector provides 11 differential IO pairs (2 with clock capability) on LA bank (accessible on LPC FMC)
  • SDR3 connector provides 11 differential IO pairs. 10  differential pairs connected to HA bank and 1 clock capable connected to LA bank. (accessible on HPC FMC)
  • SDR4 connector provides 11 differential IO pairs (3 with clock capability) on HA bank (accessible on HPC FMC)
  • 1 transceiver on LA and 1 on HA banks. Can be used as optional Dual SATA for direct disk interface. One on LPC FMC and 1 on HPC FMC carriers (needs IO core)
  • Commercial and Industrial grades
  • Low cost IO board for FPGA boards.

 

Applications

  • Defense
  • Signal communication and transfer
