FMC - FPGA Mezzanine Cards | Coax and Fibre Optic Cables

Kaya Instruments FMC Mezz Boards

Kaya Instruments manufactures companion products to its high performance machine vision industrial cameras and image acquisition frame grabbers, using the FPGA Mezzanine Card FMC standard. These obviously also work for non-imaging FPGA applications.

FMC is an ANSI/VITA (VMEbus International Trade Association) 57.1 standard that defines I/O mezzanine modules with connection to an FPGA or other device with re-configurable I/O capability. It specifies a low profile connector and compact board size for compatibility with several industry standard slot card, blade, low profile motherboard, and mezzanine form factors.

Our FPGA FMC daughterboards include:

Windows PC or Linux computer server to camera links in many combinations. Video can be captured over up to 5 channels at 6.25 Gbps each, or by 4 channels at 12.5 Gbps each.

These host and device links, where R = Receive and T = Transmit, are:

KY-HSMC2FMC FPGA High Speed Mezzanine Card to Mezzanine Card Adapter Board. This HSMC to FMC converter board connects industry standard HSMC boards to FPGA cards with the FMC interface.

The KY-FMCLPBK FMC Loopback test card is used by developers and during assembly to test and characterize FPGA Mezz Cards.

The FMCPRT prototype FPGA daughterboard breaks out the LA bank signals from the count connector on the standard FMC low pin, plus the standard control signals and power rail.

The KY-PCIE-LPBK PCIe Loopback test board is a tester board used to test and characterize PCI Express boards by developers and at fabrication.  The board has full differential loopbacks on all PCIe signals, and a JTAG interface.

Gidel Carrier Boards to Extend FPGA Accelerator Boards as Frame Grabbers

By mounting a daughterboard onto a standard Gidel FPGA accelerator card, and installing the appropriate FPGA IP Core, the necessary connectors are made available to the camera. All Gidel FPGA accelerator boards can be transformed into CXP-1 frame grabbers at 6 Gbps.

CoaXPress coaxial cables | CLHS and GigE Vision Fiber Optic Cables for Machine Vision Systems

KAYA Instruments provides high quality full coax cable assembly with DIN and BNC connectors for CoaXpress machine vision and other uses. CXP1 and CXP2 cables are made to order to any length, color, quantity, and connector combination. Low volume and production quantity coax cables can be ordered, in both 6 Gbps and 12 Gbps variants. Cables for CoaXPress Versions 1 and 2 are available.

Similarly, fiber optic cable of any length and with any connector combination in small and large volumes for CLHS, 10GigE Vision, and other applications can be provided.
