12G-SDI FMC Card R

The 12G-SDI FMC card R is a daughter card that can be expanded to 8 channels of HD / 3G / 6G / 12G multi-rate SDI interface.
Each SDI channel can be configured as either an input or an output.
It has one BNC connector for external sync reference input and a pair of SMA connectors for external transceiver reference clock input.
The verified FPGA board of this card is the Intel® Arria® 10 GX FPGA Development Kit.
