SIS1160 8 lane Gen3 PCI Express Carrier for Digitizer FMCs

vertical bar

The SIS1160 is a Xilinx Kintex Ultrascale FPGA based high performance high pin count (HPC) FMC Carrier with SFP+ cage.

While the SIS1160 card is mainly targeted at the use with Struck digitizer FMCs, we are open for your system integration and/or custom project as well.

Sub Nanosecond timing synchronization is available with the White Rabbit (WR) option. Information on White Rabbit can be found on the CERN OHWR White Rabbit page

Note: The front panel design was taken from the CERN OHWR SPEC carrier.
