VITA 57.4 FMC+ Extender Card

VITA 57.4 FMC+ Extender Card

VITA 57.4-compliant FMC+ module increases board-to-board spacing over FPGA carrier cards.


Overview

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 HSPC connectors used as test platforms.

(This is the second in a series of blogs, from Sandeep Sankararaman, Samtec’s Principal RF and Signal Integrity Engineer, discussing design strategies for high-bandwidth RF launches. The first is entitled “What Is An RF Connector Launch?” The third, coming next week, discusses GN...
If you’ve been paying attention to the Coming Soon section in our most recent web updates, you might have noticed we have been working on an upgraded Checkout system for the website for the last several months. We’re happy to announce that this application is now accepting orders...
As signal speeds increase, each part of the signal path getting to and from the device needs to work to higher frequencies.  Strategies that worked in the past no longer suffice and cheaper connectors no longer make the cut. Cable lengths and trace lengths need to get shorter to ...
This month, we released a major new version of our Checkout to a beta state, made some upgrades to how we show lead times online, made 3D model downloads easier from the Search, and released a few more content updates. Here are the major website updates to Samtec.com for July 202...
Something occurred to me recently. AI hardware system architectures are really applications-specific. Computing platforms from laptops, desktops, workstations and servers follow classical architectures. Inputs, outputs, a central processing unit, busses (control, data and memory)...
