The FMC Daughtercard is designed to interface to an FPGA development board through the standard, dual FMC configuration such as the Xilinx® Virtex® UltraScale™ VCU108 Evaluation Kit or Altera® Arria® 10 FPGA Development Kit. The board can be used stand alone to interface to Bandwidth Engine 3 devices using SPI or JTAG.

This board has 16 SerDes lanes, eight through each HPC FMC connector, and can be used with all three versions of the Bandwidth Engine 3 family, MSR630, MSR830 or MSRZ30.

The board was designed to allow operation using only one of the FMC headers using 8 lanes to the device. When using a single FMC connector the carrier board needs to be checked for mechanical clearance. Carrier boards with a single FMC HPC such as the Xilinx Kintex® UltraScale Development Kit are available from FPGA suppliers as well as 3rd party companies.
