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 based
The FMC standard specifies Samtec’s SEARAY™ connector set. The VITA 57
SEAM/SEAF Series system provides up to 400 I/Os in a 40 x 10 configuration or
160 I/Os in a selectively loaded 40 x 10 configuration, in 8.5mm and
10mm stack heights.
The FMC Dual CX4 Module
(HTG-FMC-2CX4) is a FPGA Mezzanine Connector (FMC) daughter card
with two CX4 ports (interfacing to total of
8 serial transceivers). Reference clock for the serial transceivers of
the carrier board is provided through the module's super clock .
