14 Gbps FireFlyTM FMC Development Kit

14 Gbps FireFlyTM FMC Development Kit

VITA 57.1-compliant FMC connects FPGAs to fiber optic cables up to 100 meters


Overview

Samtec's 14 Gbps FireFlyTM FMC Module provides up to 140 Gbps full-duplex bandwidth over 10 channels from an FPGA to an industry-standard multi-mode fiber optic cable. The FireFlyTM optical engines provide adjustable power levels to support cable lengths up to 100 m. The Samtec 14 Gbps FireFlyTM FMC Module supports Data Center, High Performance Computing and FPGA-to-FPGA protocols including Ethernet, InfiniBandTM, Fibre Channel and Aurora.

As a VITA 57.1 FMC, the Samtec 14 Gbps FireFlyTM FMC Module can be used for optical data communication on any FPGA development board supporting high-speed multi-gigabit transceivers. It can run system data or BERT testing on all channels in parallel. This makes evaluation and development with an FPGA much easier.

Many of our Samtec blogs focus on high-speed, high-bandwidth, cutting-edge connector applications. This makes sense because Signal Integrity is a critical issue for many of our customers, and because it’s a more flashy, attention-grabbing, sexy topic. And yes, I did just use the ...
Many electronics experience a wide range of climates while in operation and storage. Because of this fact, connector humidity testing is used to determine the ability of a product to withstand elevated humidity and cycling temperatures. Humidity testing is conducted in combinatio...
In this new video, Samtec’s Kevin Burt introduces Samtec Direct Connect™. Direct Connect gives the benefit of exiting a higher number of lanes at low loss from the chip package, which can be very useful in both high performance computing and network switching applications, especi...
This is the first release of a few phases of a new login system for Samtec.com. This replaces a system that was built in 2011 and has been running well ever since. But, technology changes over time, and it was time for an upgrade. Here are some additional details about the featur...
Modern electronic devices are getting smaller with every new generation, and as a result, they are becoming more portable.  At the same time, the performance of these devices is growing as the demands of consumers become greater.  We expect to be able to connect to the internet w...
