The VFC-HS is an Intel Arria V based VME64x carrier for one FMC+ Mezzanine Card (VITA 57.4). It is has six SFP+ transceivers compatible with support for rad-hard GBT links, CERN Beam Synchronous Timing (BST), White Rabbit and Ethernet.
This card is an upgrade of the VFC-HD for fast sampling applications. It has been developed by the Beam Instrumentation (BI) group at CERN.
