The VME FMC Carrier consist of two FPGA: System FPGA, SFPGA, and Application FPGA -AFPGA. Each FPGA is connected to several devices as follows:

System FPGA

  • Power supply system
  • Clock generation system
  • VME connections
  • DDR3 memory
  • LEMO connector
  • SFP connector
  • Gigabit interconnection lanes with Application FPGA

Application FPGA

  • FMC connector
  • VME P0/p2 connections
  • SRAM memory
  • Gigabit interconnection lanes with Application FPGA
