RADIALL is now distributing TECHWAY's WildcatFMC
In order to improve signal-processing performance, FPGA (Field-Programmable Gate Array) became a key component during the last few years. Embedded on complex but well-defined motherboard architecture, FPGA is the Swiss army knife for processing many different signals in video systems, radars or mission computers. The new paradigm for modern FPGA is extreme high-speed I/O, which requires optical links.
WildcatFMC enhances the modularity of the FPGA board equipped with mezzanine VITA 57 site by providing a plug-in and turn-key multichannel optical interface. This advantage allows the FPGA board to achieve high-speed I/O for applications requesting massive data-transfer without requiring an expensive redesign.
The core of the WildcatFMC board is made of Radiall 10+ G range D-LightsysⓇ optical transceivers, running up to 12 Gbps. The ultra-compact package of these components fits the FMC standard form factor, even for boards handling 24 optical channels.
