Potential Break-Out Solutions

If anyone finds some good solutions to Interface the 14 pin Ribbon Connectors with the VHDCI on the DAQ post them here.

If Impedence matching is not a major consideration then this may be a possible solution:

It does not explicitly say that the connector is VHDCI, but it is a 68 terminal break out designed for NI DAQ applications.  It's also stackable and relitively low cost.

I believe this is the nessicary cable to connect the VHDCI to the connector block.

Re: Potential Break-Out Solutions

Nick,


So is the idea to connect the FPGA box to this and connect this cable to the breakout box?

Re: Potential Break-Out Solutions

It looks like we can use one of our high density screw terminal blocks and the high density cable.  Once we get the 5751 and 5752 in town, we will need to experiment with this.
