Vita 57 provides a mechanical standard for I/O mezzanine modules. This standard introduces a methodology that shall allow the front panel IO of IEEE 1101 form factor cards to be configured via mezzanine boards. Vita 57 modules have fixed locations for serial/parallel IOs, clocks, Jtag signals, VCC, and GND. HiTech Global's Vita 57 modules can be plugged into any Vita 57 compliant carrier boards.
This single-size FPGA Mezzanine Connector (Vita57.1 FMC) daughter card provides access to 8 Serial Transceivers of a host FPGA through 32 SMA connectors (18GHz) and 34 pairs of differential (or 68 single-ended) signals through standard pin headers. Reference clocks for serial transceivers are provided through 2 pairs of SMA connectors and external clock generator. Place holder for programmable or standard oscillator is also available on the module for user installation.
