Optical FMC board

Interface Concept, a leading developer and manufacturer of high performance boards and systems for civil and military embedded applications, has launched a new generation of optical FMC board (IC-OPT-FMCPa) integrating Reflex Photonics LightABLE embedded transceivers for high I/O optical interconnect.
The new VITA 57.1/57.4 compliant FMC offers 120 Gbps of full-duplex bandwidth and can be used with all the FPGA Front End Processing board from Interface Concept.

Quote from Interface Concept

The IC-OPT-FMCPa is equipped with two optical modules, one handling 12 transmit channels and the other one handling 12 receive channels allowing short reach applications (up to 100 m) on parallel multi-mode fiber. As a VITA 57.1 FMC, the IC-OPT-FMCPa can be used for data communication with our Virtex-6, Virtex-7 and above Front End Processing boards. (...)
Interface Concept has designed VITA57-compliant carrier boards, based on last generations of FPGA’s and offering the flexibility of a FMC site that can run the IC-OPT-FMCa.

Benefits of using optical transceiver

  • The IC-OPT-FMCPa is equipped with two optical modules, one handling 12 transmit channels and the other one handling 12 receive channels allowing short reach applications (up to 100 m) on parallel multimode fiber.
  • Two 12 MT-type optical connectors, one of the TX engine and one for the RX engine.
  • Power dissipation: 3.5 W including the consumption of the two optical engines.
