Other Parts Discussed in Thread: DLPC410
I plan to buy an FMC CameraLink card from Alpha Data, and there are 2 requirements acc. to the supplier :
>> Is FMC-Cameralink board suitable with Xilinx Virtex-5 ? (Specifically for XC5VLX50)
It will depend on the board with the Virtex-5 chip.
You will need to check that:
- That the appropriate signals from the FMC connector are connected to the Virtex-5 chip as differential pairs. Please see the signal lists / pinouts in the FMC-Camera Link manual: FMC-CAMERALINK User Manual V2.7 (alpha-data.com)
- That the FPGA board can provide a VADJ voltage in the range of 1.8 to 3.3V.
Most boards with FPGAs connected to a Vita-57 compliant LPC FMC connector should work no problem, as long as they can provide a VADJ voltage in the range of 1.8 to 3.3V.
When I check DLPLCRC410EVM Datasheet, it seems that there are 2 EXP Voltage options, 2.5V and 3.3V. Do you think that it is possible to use FMC-Cameralink adapter with Virtex-5 FPGA and related EXP FMC Connectors ? I plan to connect an CameraLink-HS camera to DLP FPGA via this adapter card, so that I can make some image processing directly on Virtex FPGA.
