25/28 Gbps FireFlyTM FMC+ Development Kit

VITA 57.4-COMPLIANT FMC+ MODULE CONNECTS FPGAs to FIBER OPTIC CABLES UP TO 100m


Overview

Samtec’s 25/28 Gbps FireFlyTM FMC+ Module provides up to 400/448 Gbps full-duplex bandwidth over up to 16 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 25/28 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 57.4 FMC+ solution, the Samtec 25/28 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.

In December, we wrapped up a number of new features to Samtec.com to round out the 2018 year, including a new way to find Samtec sales locations and distributors, a new homepage panel for our Micro Rugged products, continued mobile optimizations, and a few updates to our Industry...
112 Gbps Samtec Flyover™ Demo Samtec’s Ralph Page walks us through a live demonstration of a Samtec Flyover™ system which enables 112 Gbps PAM4 performance. The Credo CDR generates two ports of 31-bit PRBS data at 112 Gbps PAM4 data rates. The signal travels from the Credo Pelica...
Since Samtec began in 1976, free connector samples have been a cornerstone of our business model. That said, we’re always looking for ways to continue to improve how we get samples into your hands. Recently we rolled out a simplified way to place sample requests on the website, w...
It was hot, really hot. In fact, things were getting so bad the walls around us were starting to melt, and just like that it was over; we failed current carrying capacity. That is Current Carrying Capacity (CCC) in a nutshell, well it would be if the parts were failing. Samtec pe...
In this video from SC18, Jignesh Shah of Samtec’s High Speed Connectivity Group walks us through a demonstration of a rearchitected Open Compute Project (OCP) wedge switch. By rearchitected we mean it utilizes Samtec Flyover™ high-speed cable assemblies to achieve next gen speeds...
