FPGA Mezzanine Card (FMC) prototype board


Key Features:

  • Provides rapid means to develop new and complex FMC systems for later integration to standard FMC form factor
  • SMA connectors not soldered to PCB allowing custom assembly options (Optional)
  • The footprint for on board EEPROM simplifies complete FMC-compatible interface
  • Breakout of High-Speed serial interfaces, clocks, and control signals enables easy completion of full capability FMC functions

Ordering Code:


The FMC prototype board breaks out the complete LA bank of signals from the standard FMC Low Pin count Connector and the standard power rail and control signals. The user can add standard 0.1-inch spaced components and sockets for a wide variety of active and passive devices thus enabling the development of very complex capabilities. Standard control signals are available for the user to complete the interface to the chosen carrier card. The Series signals could be accessed from SMA connectors, which could be soldered on any side of the prototype card
