AMD UltraScale FMC+ Carrier

Rugged mid-range FPGA processing for cost-sensitive defence, aerospace and industrial programs


  • 3U VPX FPGA FMC Carrier aligned with the SOSA Technical Standard
  • AMD UltraScale™ FPGA processor
  • Wide range of OpenVPX slot profiles
  • Data & expansion planes for high-speed protocols
  • Up to 8GB DDR4 ECC memory
  • VITA 57.4 FMC+ mezzanine site for I/O module
  • Air or conduction-cooled
  • Designed and made in the Netherlands
  • Long-term Availability and Security Assured




The 3U VPX V3UFMC01P4 is a member of Hybrid DSP’s XU01P 1156 Core Series of mid-range, cost effective, rugged processing boards based on the AMD Kintex UltraScale A1156 FPGA package, up to 8GB DDR4 and an ARM-based Board Management Controller (BMC).

The V3UFMC01P4 is available with a range of build options for OpenVPX air and conduction cooled based systems as well as those aligned with the SOSA Technical Standard. Features include an FMC+ site to support mezzanine cards with I/O routing to either the front panel or optionally VITA 66/67 optical/coax blind mate connectors on the backplane.

In addition to numerous standard build options, the design is optimized for rapid customization of many key features including the front-panel, cooling solution, reference firmware, and BMC. Furthermore, the PCB layout and stack-up allows for a viable low-risk route for more complex technical and commercial requirements including modular-to-monolithic.
