FMC-SDI Mezzanine Card

General Description

FMC card with dual, independent SDI inputs and dual loop-through outputs. Supports SD-SDI, ED-SDI, HD-SDI and 3G-SDI modes up to full HD1080p60 resolution. Does not require high-speed Gbit transceivers in the FPGA base-board as the SDI deserialization is built into the design. Features cable equalization and a simple LVDS interface with the FPGA logic. The card is compatible with all development boards that feature the standard FMC-LPC, FMC-HPC or FMC+ connector (ANSI/VITA 57.1). Examples include those from Xilinx®, Intel®, Avnet®, Digilent® and Microchip®.

Key Design Features

- Standard ANSI/VITA 57.1 FMC™ LPC, HPC or FMC+ connector
- 2 x SD-SDI, ED-SDI, HD-SDI, 3G-SDI independent inputs
- 2 x SD-SDI, ED-SDI, HD-SDI, 3G-SDI re-clocked (loop-through) outputs
- Support for: SMPTE 259M, SMPTE 344M, SMPTE 292M, SMPTE 424M and DVB-ASI
- Features standard 4 x BNC 75Ω connectors for coax cable
- Video resolutions up to 1920x1080 @ 60Hz (Full HD)
- Full SDI adaptive equalization on both channels
- Features a simple LVDS 5 x lane interface to the host device
- FMC card performs full clock recovery from the SDI signal
- Generates a clean recovered pixel clock for forwarding/video sync
- No need for embedded Gbit transceivers in the FPGA
- Support for SoCs like Zynq-7000 that don't have embedded Gbit Rx/Tx
- 2 x M3 mounting holes for securing the FMC connector
- 2 x M3 mounting holes for supporting standoff 'legs'
- Example RTL source-code provided for easy board bringup
- Compatible with a wide range of FMC base-boards
- Dimensions approx 10 x 6.7 cm
