Avnet Releases Low-Cost Gigabit Network FMC Module

Utilizing Ethernet PHYs from Microchip, new module accelerates development of Industrial IoT

PHOENIX – September 11, 2018 – Avnet (Nasdaq: AVT), a leading global technology solutions provider, today introduced the Avnet Network FMC Module, offering designers of emerging industrial Internet of Things (IoT) applications industry-leading Gigabit Ethernet switching at less than half the cost of devices currently available on the market. Optimized for Xilinx FPGA and SoC-based industrial Ethernet digital communications systems, the new Dual 1000 Mbps Networking FMC Module supports applications such as cloud-based data centers and industrial automation.

“By bringing together key technologies from Microchip, Avnet and Xilinx, we have succeeded in developing a Network FMC Module that satisfies customer needs for gigabit Ethernet, while dramatically reducing the cost to deploy,” said Kevin Keryk, technical marketing manager, Avnet. “This Network FMC Module opens up a world of possibilities for designers to accelerate development of industrial IoT and connected factory systems, including Gigabit Ethernet switches, industrial IoT gateways, hardware-accelerated routers and real-time Time-Sensitive Networking (TSN).”

This versatile new module has several reference designs that are compatible with Avnet’s own UltraZed family of boards, plus this VITA 57 standards-based module is also compatible with other Xilinx Zynq-UltraScale+ boards available on the market today.

Technical Specifications:

  • FMC LPC single-width module
  • Dual RGMII 10/100/1000 Ethernet PHY
  • Dual Ethernet MAC ID EEPROM
  • IPMI EEPROM
  • Bi-Color Status LEDs
  • 3.3V – 1.8V IO Voltage compatibility 

Now available to customers in the Americas, EMEA, Asia and Japan, the Network FMC module (AES-FMC-NETW1-G) is priced at $149. For more information, visit http://avnet.me/fmc-network1. Reference designs using the recommended equipment can be found on the Reference Design Page for the UltraZed-EG + PCIe Carrier Card. Additional reference material is available on the Network FMC accessory page, http://avnet.me/fmc-network1-doc.
