12G-SDI FMC Card


The 12G-SDI FMC Card is a daughter card that is expandable to an SDI interface with 4 channels that have multi-rates (SD-SDI/HD-SDI/3G-SDI/6G-SDI/12G-SDI). These expansions are possible by combining Intel's Arria® 10 GX FPGA Development Kit and another FPGA board that is compliant with the FPGA Mezzanine Card (FMC) Standard.

  • Quad SDI inputs/outputs, a sync reference input
  • Right-angle type BNC connectors are used in an input/output and a sync reference input
  • External reference clock for FPGA transceiver can be supplied through an SMP connector
