FM-S14 Quad SFP/SFP+ transceiver FMC

Modular FPGA I/O in FMC (VITA57) module

Enables high-speed serial (fiber optic or copper) connections into an FPGA's MGT interfaces.

One quad-SFP cage supports four (4) SFP/SFP+ transceiver modules.

Supports a wide range of SFP and SFP+ transceivers with signaling rates up to 10Gb/sec.

2.5 or 1.8 volt signaling (Rev C or newer)

Two Programmable reference clocks

  • Direct connections between SFP/SFP+ transceivers and host FPGA ensures maximum throughput and minimum latency
  • Easily interfaces high-density, high-speed I/O to an FPGA-based host board
  • 2.5V or 1.8 volt signaling ensures compatibility with Virtex-6, Kintex-7, Virtex-7 and other FPGAs


The FM-S14 is an FPGA Mezzanine Card (FMC) module that provides up to four SFP/SFP+ module interfaces directly into Multi-Gigabit Transceivers (MGTs) of a Xilinx FPGA. Note: In various Xilinx FPGA families, Xilinx refers to these high-speed serial links as RocketIO ports, GTHs, GTXs, and GTPs. For simplicity, in this product brief they will collectively be referred to as MGTs. The FM-S14 supports the industry standard Small Form-factor Pluggable (SFP/SFP+) transceiver module interface.

The FM-S14 supports either 1.8 or 2.5 volt signaling to ensure interoperability across a wide range of Spartan, Virtex, Kintex, Artix and other FPGA families.

The FM-S14 is electrically compliant with the FMC standard. Due to the size of the quad SFP cage, the FM-S14 is classified as a mechanical superset of the FMC mechanical standards. Special attention should be paid to ensure that the FM-S14 is mechanically compatible if used with non-supported host carrier cards.
