AF101

FMC Test Board

AF101 -  - Apissys

 

Applications

  • FMC carrier test

Features

  • VITA 57 FMC form factor
  • FMC LA, HA and HB differential pairs loopbacks
  • FMC DP differential pairs loopbacks
  • FMC clock generation
  • Air cooled and Conduction cooled rugged versions
  • FPGA firmware cores
     

The AF101 is part of ApisSys' range of modular IOs solutions based on the VITA 57, FPGA Mezzanine Card standard.

The AF101 provides FMC carrier developers and assembly facilities with a tool for full characterisation of the FMC interface.

The AF101 features loopbacks on all FMC differential pairs on HPC connectors.

 

The AF101 provides an on board, user programmable, low jitter clock generator supporting reference clocks as required for PCIe, SATA, SRIO, Fiber Channel, Aurora, Gbit Ethernet or XAUI protocols.

The AF101 provides four on board LVDS oscillators feeding the CLK_M2C and CLK_BIDIR FMC clocks.

FMC interface

The AF101 features a VITA 57 – FMC (FPGA Mezzanine Card) compliant slot.

The AF101 provides Tx to Rx loopbacks on the Multi-gigabit differential pairs DP0 to DP9.
The AF101 provides loopbacks on the LA, HA and HB differentials pairs.

Clocks

The AF101 provides an on-board, user programmable, low jitter clock generator used to provide clock references as required for high speed serial links (Virtex® 6 GTX). The clock frequency on GBTCLK0 and GBTCLK1 can be selected among the following:

  • 100 MHz, supporting PCIe gen 1
  • 125 MHz, supporting PCIe gen 1, GigE, Aurora and SRIO 1.25 and 2.5 Gbps
  • 150 MHz, supporting SATA
  • 156.25 MHz, supporting XAUI, SRIO and Aurora 3.125 Gbps
  • 250 MHz, supporting PCIe gen 2
  • 312.5 MHz, supporting Aurora 5 and 6.25 Gbps

The AF101 provides four on-board LVDS oscillators:

  • 200 MHz on CLK0_M2C and CLK2_BIDIR
  • 350 MHz on CLK1_M2C and CLK3_BIDIR
 

Firmware

The AF101 comes with a firmware package which includes VHDL cores allowing control and communication with all AF101 hardware resources.

A base design is provided that demonstrates the use of the AF101 and gives users a starting point for firmware development.

The AF101 firmware package is supported on the Xilinx ISE® 12 design suite and later.

The AF101 firmware package has been fully validated on the AV103 and other ApisSys FMC carrier products.

Ruggedization

The AF101 is delivered in air cooled and conduction cooled standard or rugged versions for used in severe environmental conditions.

Standard VITA 47 supported ruggedization levels are EAC4, EAC6 and ECC3.
