Developed by a consortium of companies ranging from FPGA vendors to end users, the FPGA Mezzanine Card is an ANSI standard that provides a standard mezzanine card form factor, connectors, and modular interface to an FPGA located on a base board. Decoupling the I/O interfaces from the FPGA simplifies I/O interface module design while maximizing carrier card reuse.
- Data throughput: Individual signaling speeds up to 10 Gb/s are supported, with a potential overall bandwidth of 40 Gb/s between mezzanine and carrier card
- Latency: Elimination of protocol overhead removes latency and ensures deterministic data delivery.
- Design simplicity: Expertise in protocol standards such as PCI, PCI Express®, or Serial RapidIO is not required.
- System overhead: Simplifying the system design reduces power consumption, IP core costs, engineering time, and material costs.
- Design reuse: Whether using a custom in-house board design or a commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) mezzanine or carrier card, the FMC standard promotes the ability to retarget existing FPGA/carrier card designs to a new I/O.
All that required is swapping out the FMC module and slightly adjusting the FPGA design.
FMC-HDMI: Dual HDMI Input Expansion Card
Extends FMC-compatible FPGA systems with two HDMI Type A input ports. It’s extremely useful for image or video processing applications.
FMC to CRUVI Adapter
The Trenz Electronic CR00101-01 is an FMC adapter for dual CRUVI modules with high-speed connectors. Intel MAX10 is available as user system controller.
HW-FMC-XM105-G Debug Card
Designed to provide access to many of the pins on the FMC connector found on Xilinx FMC-supported boards, including the SP601,SP605 and ML605.
FMC Card with four SFP+ 10 Gbit ports
The Trenz Electronic TEF0008 is an FPGA to Mezzanine Card (FMC) based on VITA 57.1 FMC HPC Standard, with four SFP+ 10 Gbit ports for fibre optical SFP modules. It is intended for use on an FMC HPC carrier and can not be used stand-alone.
FMC L-Band RF Receiver
An L-band RF receiver FMC card that allows you to receive RF signals between 925 and 2,250 MHz. It is ideally suited for satellite communication with standard satellite dishes since it includes a DiSEqC driver IC for LNB controlling.
