Optics / FPGA Kits

Optics / FPGA Kits

FPGA developers and system-level architects prototyping with industry-standard FPGA evaluation and development kits often leverage the FMC and FMC+ interfaces for I/O expansion and system level testing. On-board optical modules continue to gain acceptance in embedded, medical and mil/aero applications.

Samtec offers a wide portfolio of FMC, FMC+ and optical module evaluation kits for real-time development and testing in a lab setting.
