VITA 57.1 FMC Extender Card

VITA 57.1 FMC Extender Card

VITA 57.1-compliant FMC module increases board-to-board spacing over FPGA carrier cards.


Engineers prototyping with industry-standard FPGA evaluation and development kits often leverage the FMC interface for I/O expansion that fits their application needs. In some cases, the mating height of the standard FMC connectors may prevent fully leveraging the connectivity options of all FMC+ modules.

In response to that need, Samtec has developed the FMC Extender Card for placement between FPGA Carrier Cards and FMC Modules. This increased space can be used for additional I/O expansion during development.

The FMC Extender Card also provides a cost-effective option for extending the life of the FPGA Carrier Card HPC connectors used as test platforms.
