FPC401 quad port controller evaluation module


Order now


The FPC401EVM aggregates all low-speed signals of two stacked on-board QSFP and SFP cages and LEDs, allowing full control of the four ports through a single I2C or SPI interface. The on-board MSP430 controller and GUI allow for easy configuration and testing of the FPC401 with both I2C and SPI and the headers also allow for interfacing with an external host controller.

  • On-board SPI/I2C controller for easy programming via USB port
  • On-board QSFP+ and SFP+ cages with LEDs
  • Reference layout for placement of FPC401 underneath SFP+ cage

  • AE9929-ND Mini USB Cable
