TECHWAY’s Wildcat FMC optical boards extend the modularity of an FPGA (field-programmable gate array) board with onboard mezzanine VITA 57 site by also placing a plug-in and turnkey multichannel optical interface. The addition enables the FPGA board to reach high-speed I/O for applications calling for massive data transfer without needing an expensive redesign.

The board comprises a Radiall 10+ G range D-Lightsys optical transceiver running up to 12 Gbps, in an FMC standard form factor. When air-cooled, it has a temperature range of -20 °C to +70 °C and features an MTP connector. When conduction-cooled, it has a temperature range of -40 °C to +85 °C and has a C-MTITAN connector. The WildcatFMC is aimed at users in harsh defense environments. The TECHWAY board is now being distributed by Radiall, a French company that designs, develops, and manufactures connectors and associated components for use in electronic applications.
