The module allows the FPGA to access a large capacity of storage in a compact space. The FMC257 interfaces to the carrier via dual PCIe x4 (DP0-3 and DP4-7), with supporting IP being available for VadaTech carriers. The storage has an option for SED which is hardware-based AES-256 Encryption engine. In addition, the FMC257 provides eight RS-485/422 RX plus eight RS-485/422 TX, and eight single-ended +3.3V input or outputs (user configurable per I/O).
The RS-485/422 configuration can be selected as full-duplex RS-422 (independent RX/TX pairs with RX termination) or half-duplex RS-485 (RX/TX pairs tied together, no termination on board) based on the ordering option. The FMC257 can provide power of up to 12W to an external module.
