Announcing that the new Ethernet FMC, a Quad Gigabit Ethernet FPGA Mezzanine Card (FMC) is now available to buy. The board is designed for easy integration with the ZedBoard, with open-source example designs so you can start designing your product sooner. The low-pin-count FMC features 4 Marvell PHYs, a 125MHz oscillator and a quad RJ45 with integrated magnetics.

The Ethernet FMC is compliant to the Vita 57.1 FMC standard except for its height (due to the RJ45 connector) and its length. The FMC is electrically and mechanically compatible with the ZedBoard and all the Xilinx evaluation boards.


  • 4 x Gigabit Ethernet ports
  • Vita 57.1 electrically compliant low-pin-count FMC
  • 125MHz clock oscillator
  • Example designs for the ZedBoard (Vivado)


  • Gigabit Ethernet Switch
  • Ethernet Traffic Monitor
  • Latency Measurement
  • High-speed Congestion Control
