Overview of VITA57 - FMC
Denis Smetana
May 14, 2015
What is FMC?
 FMC = FPGA Mezzanine Card
– Small mezzanine form-factor to
enable easy customization of
FPGA I/O (69mm x 71-84mm)
– Can be used on multiple FPGA
carrier card form factors
– Generally < 10 watts
– IP/SW provided by FMC vendor
– Supports both air-cooled and
conduction-cooled environments
Why FMC?
 More flexible I/O than PMC/XMC
 Support for wide parallel interfaces
– Low latency
 Support for higher speed I/O

Enables Common FPGA Carrier for multiple applications
FMC Signals
 80 Differential Pairs (160 single ended)
– LPC [00:33]; HPC (HA[00:23]; HB[00:21])
 4 differential clocks, 2 optionally sourced by carrier
 10 High Speed SERDES, with two SERDES clocks
 I2C Control Interface
 Misc: GA, JTAG, Present, Power Good, Power/GND

Large Ecosystem
FMCS HAVE BEEN WIDELY ADOPTED
 Large number of vendors who
develop either FMC cards, FPGA
cards with FMC sites, or both
 Predominantly ADC or DAC or
ADC/DAC FMCs. But some Memory /
RF / DSP / or fiber based FMCs also

History of VITA57
 Initial work started in 2005
 ANSI Ratification in 2008
 Updated in 2010
– Minor revisions related to SERDES signals and clocks and some
clarifications
 New dot specifications underway
– VITA 57.2 – meta-data standard for PROM data (XML)
– VITA 57.3 – logic interfaces for firmware that resides in FPGA
– VITA 57.4 – adding more SERDES support for FMC connector
VITA57.4 Why?
 New ADC and DAC devices are going serial (JESD204B)
 FPGA SERDES continue to increase in quantity and speed
 Memories are also going serial (HMC)
 Current VITA47.1 FMC specification limited to 10 SERDES
 ADC/DAC bandwidth can exceed FMC bandwidth
Focus of V57.4 is to add SERDES bandwidth
Summary of Proposed Changes
 Moving from 10x40 connector to 14x40
– Extends support from 10 GTs to 24 GTs
– Connector backward compatible with existing
connector
 SI Analysis completed on current Samtec
connector
–
All pin pairs operate at 28 Gbps with sufficient margin provided that standard
Forward Error Correction [FEC] is utilized in the FPGA receiver.
 Adding Optional 4x20 Aux connector
– Extends support from 24 GTs to 32 GTs
– Location still in discussion
 Addition of backplane Reference clock & sync
New signals and pinout of extended V57.4 connector
- 2 UserDef pairs  BP_REFCLK_C2M; BP_SYNC_C2M and add V57D4_PRESENT_M2C_L
Add Present signal to optional Auxiliary connector
- Add V57D4_AUX_PRSNT_M2C_L signal to this connector
Summary
 VITA57 provides a flexible solution for enabling a
configurable I/O front-end for FPGAs
 Supports both parallel and serial I/O, air-cooled and
conduction cooled environments
 VITA57.4 will bring new capability to address new
ADC/DAC, memory, and FPGA technology
 Draft specification underway
