Excel sheet(s) with all ADI FMC board connectors

Question asked by rwe on Jun 19, 2018

Is there one or multiple excel sheets that contain the pin assignments of all ADI FMC boards?

 

I'm designing an FPGA base board with 2 FMC connectors, and I want to distribute my free FPGA pins as 'good as possible' to these FMC connectors, so I can make maximal use of commercial FMC boards.

 

Ideally I would be able to populate 2 HPC connectors, but of course I don't have enough pins to fully populate these - so I'm wondering which pins I can 'drop' without loosing too many options to mount commercial FMC IO boards.

 

Is there an (unwritten) strategy in FMC-land? Like everybody starts using the diff pairs  with the lowest index : LA[00] up to LA[33], and then starts using HA[00] up to HA[23], and up next HB[00] up to HB[21]?
