FPGA-based processing board targets computing clusters

November 20, 2013 // By Julien Happich
Alpha Data has worked closely with Xilinx to bring a powerful new processing solution to the data centre market based on Xilinx' All Programmable FPGAs.

The ADM-PCIE-7V3 board can accelerate processing, increase data throughput and expand the range of solutions possible on computing clusters.

Using a Xilinx Virtex-7 FPGA, the board features two independent channels of DDR3 memory capable of 1600 Mtransfers/sec, high speed I/O, dual SFP+ ports supporting 10G Ethernet, SATA connections, voltage/temperature/current control and monitoring, passive air-cooled heat sink, all on a half-length, low profile PCIe form factor. It is available with the Virtex-7 XC7VX690T-2FFG1157C FPGA and ships with a comprehensive Software Development Kit (SDK) including example designs.
