List of FPGA dev boards with SFP/QSFP/OSFP


The following development boards all have Small Form-factor Pluggable SFP, QSFP and/or OSFP transceiver sockets. SFP, QSFP and OSFP modules interface with gigabit transceivers in the FPGA/MPSoC and transform the link into one of many standards such as Gigabit Ethernet, 10GBE, FiberChannel and InfiniBand. Typically, SFP/QSFP/OSFP modules are extremely cost effective and easy to procure, making them an especially popular means to implement high speed links with FPGAs and MPSoCs.

There are many variations of SFP modules (SFP,SFP+,QSFP,QSFP+,QSFPDD, etc) so we have grouped them into three categories: SFP, QSFP and OSFP. In the case of QSFPDD (double density), these connectors are counted here in the QSFP column, where 1xQSFPDD = 2xQSFP connectors.

If none of these boards are suitable for your application, another possibility for interfacing with SFP/QSFP modules is to use one of the many SFP/QSFP FPGA Mezzanine Cards (FMC) available on the market. If you do use an FMC card, be sure to check that your FPGA/MPSoC dev board actually has the necessary gigabit transceivers and that they are routed to the FMC connector(s) that you want to use.
