FMC-BRK Mezzanine Card

General Description

The Zipcores FMC-BRK Mezzanine card is a versatile FMC breakout-board and prototyping platform that conforms to the ANSI/VITA 57.1 FMC™ mezzanine standard. The card is compatible with a wide range of base-boards and FMC-compliant systems. Examples include evaluation boards from Xilinx®, Intel®, Avnet® and Digilent®. The card provides passive connectivity to all 160 signals on the FMC (LPC) connector via 4 x standard 0.100" pitch (2.54 mm) headers. This includes 34 x differential LVDS pairs (LA00:33) or 68 x single-ended signals. The differential pairs are balanced for track length and impedance-matched for 100Ω LVDS termination. The ground pins of the FMC are also connected to an independent ground plane to offer the best possible signal integrity and noise immunity.

Key Design Features

- Standard ANSI/VITA 57.1 FMC™ LPC or HPC connector
- 4 x headers provide passive connectivity to all 160 pins on the FMC connector (rows C, D, G and H)
