Question about FMC connector on Nexys Video board

Recommended Posts

     I'm interested in the Nexys Video FPGA board.  In most areas the board is just what I need.  The one I need to verify is parallel I/O.  In my application, I will need 40 or 50 general-purpose I/O signals.  These will connect to a custom-made board.

     In the case of the Nexys Video board, the connection will need to be through the FMC connector.  I've looked for these connectors and find the Digikey says "no longer made".  Also, your website doesn't have any of the connectors for sale.  Is there any way I could get a connector to put on my own board to match the FMC on the Nexys Video?

     The high I/O requirement has made most of your boards unusable for my application.  Please let suggest if there's another board I should consider.  I've quite successfully used Nexys 3 Spartan 6 board, but this has become obsolete and I need to move on.  Thanks!

Hi Allan,

I have asked some of our applications engineers for their recommendation for either a connector or an alternate board recommendation. The will get back to you here on the forum.

Thanks,

Hello

DigiKey had the connector but now it's currently out of stock. You can find it at Farnell http://uk.farnell.com/samtec/asp-134603-01/conn-vita-57-fmc-rcpt-160pos-4row/dp/2433506

or you can search on other online shops: The part number is ASP-134603-01 and is produced by Samtec.

Best regards,

Bianca

Thanks JColvin and Bianca.  Yes, I had searched online for that part.  I noticed a few sources, but all in the UK and none in the US.  That doesn't bother me, except I thought perhaps the connector was being phased out.
