Samtec Introduces New VITA 57.4-compliant FMC+ Loopback Cards

Solutions Provide Convenient Testing and Validation Platform for FPGA Carrier Cards

New Albany, IN: Samtec, a privately held $662MM global manufacturer of a broad line of electronic interconnect solutions, proudly announces the release of the two new VITA 57.4-compliant FMC+ Loopback Cards. These new solutions provide FPGA designers easy to use loopback options for testing low-speed and high-speed multi-gigabit transceivers on any FPGA development board or FPGA carrier card.

Samtec’s two new FMC+ loopback cards – the VITA 57.4 FMC+ HSPC Loopback Card and the VITA 57.4 FMC+ HSPC/HSPCe Loopback Card– each come in VITA 57.4-compliant form factors. The new FMC+ Loopback cards feature optimized SI performance via Samtec Final Inch® break-our region (BOR) PCB Trace Routing for the VITA 57.4 FMC+ connectors included in the cards.

The VITA 57.4 FMC+ HSPC Loopback Card includes one HSPC VITA 57.4 FMC+ Connector (Samtec P/N ASP-184330-01). It supports 24 high-speed multi-gigabit transeceivers operating at data rates up to 28 Gbps per channel.

The VITA 57.4 FMC+ HSPC/HSPCe Loopback Card includes one HSPC VITA 57.4 FMC+ Connector (Samtec P/N ASP-184330-01) and HSPCe VITA 57.4 FMC+ Connector (Samtec P/N ASP-186900-01). It supports up to 32 high-speed multi-gigabit transeceivers operating at data rates up to 28 Gbps per channel.

“Samtec’s new FMC+ Loopback cards make FPGA evaluation and development much easier,” said Matt Burns, Product Marketing Manager at Samtec, Inc. “Samtec’s tested and verified VITA 57.4-compliant solutions offer peace-of-mind and ease-of-use via readily available reference designs and technical documentation.”
