25/28 Gbps FireFlyTM FMC+ Development Kit

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.
