FPGA Mezzanine Card for CoaXPress™
CoaXPress FMC Overview
The FMC CoaXPress card is the industry’s first FPGA Mezzanine Card (VITA 57.1) providing a high performance CoaXPress compliant connection. The FMC CoaXPress is capable of capturing video from up to 5 CoaXPress channels and is ideally suited to industrial, defense and aerospace applications. This mezzanine card might be also used as camera simulator, emulating up to 5 transmitting channels.
Customer specific data pre-processing or custom protocols are easily accommodated via FPGA carrier card. The FMC CoaXPress also provides isolated GPIO for input/output signals, such as triggers, shaft encoders, exposure control and general I/O. The FMC CoaXPress uses a high-pin count connector (HPC) as an interface to the host board, general purpose I/O and can be used in a ruggedized conduction cooled factor for harsher environments.
Up to 5 host/device links can be provided using front panel DIN 1.0/2.3 connectors. Each link supports standard CoaXPress bitrates up to 6.25 Gbps. Each host link is capable of providing up to 13W of power to compatible devices via Power over CoaXPress (PoCXP). The FMC CoaXPress can support up to 5 individual links, or combinations of aggregated CoaXPress links (e.g. one camera requiring one link, and two additional cameras each using two links).
