Introducing our new ZIP-FMC-SDI Mezzanine card
with dual, independent SDI inputs and dual loop-through outputs. Includes cable equalization/amplification and full pixel clock recovery. Supports 3G-SDI/HD-SDI/ED-SDI/SD-SDI and DVB-ASI stream up to HD1080p60 resolution. No high-speed Gbit transceivers required as the SDI deserialization is built into the design. Features a simple LVDS interface ideal for ALL
eval boards. Examples include low-cost boards from AMD/Xilinx® using Zynq-7000 and Spartan-7 devices such as ZC702, ZedBoard, MicroZed, SP701, etc.

A new project at the Instituto de Astrofísica de Canarias (IAC, "QUIJOTE")
, intended to study Deep Space Cosmic Background Radiation, is making use of our FMC breakout card.
Together with a Xilinx® Zynq-7000 base board (ZEDboard), our FMC Card
is being used for the interfacing and control of a 256 channel x 24-bit data acquisition system. The system uses an array of small microwave antennas and a bank of high-res 24-bit AD7768 ADCs from Analog Devices.
Engineer, Sergio Gonzalez, adds: "The success of our work with IAC continues with the ZIP-FMC-BRK card and it's proving to be a very useful prototyping platform during tests. The IAC research project will study very deep space (20-100 GHz) residual radiation and its anisotropy."

Professor Ming C. Wu's group at the University of California, Berkeley, has chosen Zipcores' ZIP-FMC-DSP Mezzanine card
for their research into machine learning using photonics. Philip Jacobson, key PhD researcher at Berkeley explains:
"Given our reliance on analog electronics, we're using an FPGA with the Zipcores FMC card to control the data I/O within our system. This FMC card allows us to sample at high speed using a low-cost, low-power PicoZed platform. The FMC card has proven critical for the demonstration of complicated machine learning tasks like image recognition.
Ultimately, the goal of our work is to develop novel, high-speed, low-power machine learning platforms by leveraging photonics. Our work is based on the reservoir computing paradigm, in which an electro-optic modulator with delayed feedback is used to perform classification tasks".
