12G SDI FMC Daughter Card

Our VIDIO 12G SDI FMC Daughter Card equips developers with the latest in broadcast video technology. VIDIO offers 12G SDI and 10G IP interfaces supporting resolutions up to 4Kp60 on select Xilinx Ultrascale, Ultrascale+, Kintex, Virtex, and Zynq, as well as Intel/Altera Arria 10 and Cyclone 10 development boards.

Designed to support Xilinx KCU116, KCU105, KC705, ZCU102/106, Intel Arria 10, Cyclone 10, Stratix 10, and most other development boards supporting the FMC HPC Standard.


Our 12G SDI FMC Card is a single FMC board utilizing the latest technology from Texas Instruments® and boasting full size edge launch BNC’s and an SFP+ for SDI or IP development. Schematics, Gerbers, bill of materials, along with example projects are available to help jump-start your hardware design. 

NO SOFTWARE REQUIRED – Unlike other solutions, there is no software or programming required to initialize the VIDIO. It powers up with a default configuration to enable you to use it immediately.

Our field proven VIDIO FMC Development Module has been selected by Intel for use in their Arria 10 and Cyclone 10 User Guide and Reference Designs.
