Samtec delivers 14 Gbps FireFly dev kit

  • Author:Ella Cai
  • Release on:2017-07-25
Samtec, the Indiana interconnect specialist, Has brought out a 14 Gbps FireFly FMC Development Kit to evaluate and develop  Samtec’s FireFly optical engines.

The 14 Gbps FireFly FMC Module provides up to 140 Gbps full-duplex bandwidth over 10 channels from an FPGA to an industry-standard multi-mode fiber optic cable.

Samtec’s 14 Gbps FireFly FMC Development Kit supports Data Center, High Performance Computing and FPGA-to-FPGA protocols including Ethernet, InfiniBand, Fibre Channel and Aurora.

FireFly optical engines make the electrical to optical conversion in the transmit path and the optical to electrical conversion in the receive path. They are based on  850nm VCSEL array technology while featuring adjustable power levels to support cable lengths up to 100 m.

As a VITA 57.1-compliant FMC, Samtec’s 14 Gbps FireFly FMC Module can be used for optical data communication on any FMC-enabled FPGA development board supporting high-speed multi-gigabit transceivers. It can run system data or BERT testing from a single channel to all ten channels in parallel. Technical documentation and FPGA reference designs are available for quick start-up.

“Samtec’s new 14 Gbps FireFly FMC Development Kit eases FireFly evaluation and development by leveraging the FMC interface common on most industry-standard FPGA development tools,” says Samtec’s Matt Burns.
