BittWare recently announced two new boards in its Altera Arria 10 FPGA product roadmap to complement their existing Arria 10 3U VPX and PCIe offerings: A10PED and A10XM4.
The A10PED Dual Arria 10 PCIe full-length Gen3 x16 Card supporting either the 660 or 1150 KLE size FPGAs (GX), with one supporting an optional SoC (SX) with dual ARM. Primarily targeting signal and network packet processing applications the board provides 28 lanes of serial I/O up to 10.325 Gbps each, with support for high-accuracy time stamping. Featuring 4x 260-pin DDR4 SODIMMs and a Hybrid Memory Cube (HMC), the A10PED will support up to 68 GB of memory with a peak aggregate memory bandwidth of over 175 GB/sec (not including I/O or PCIe). For latency-sensitive applications, some or all of the DDR4 SODIMMs can be replaced with proprietary QDR-II/IV SRAM SODIMMs. These memory options, coupled with full support for Altera’s OpenCL tools, also make this board compelling for acceleration & co-processing applications.
The A10XM4 Arria 10 XMC (VITA 42) Module provides network interface (NIC) and cyber/security capabilities in addition to host/carrier acceleration for applications in radar, EW, networking, and SigInt. In addition, it will support full conduction cooling. Compatible with any standard XMC carrier, the A10XM4 features an Arria 10 GX FPGA with two lanes of 10 GigE, along with up to 16 GB of memory and PCIe Gen3 x8 PCIe to the host. BittWare’s NIC application example and OpenCL BSP will greatly simplify the integration and development of cyber/security additions to and off-loading of standard host applications.
The A10PED full length PCIe board will be available Q4 2015 and the A10XM4 XMC board will be available Q1 2016. Contact BittWare for configurations, pricing, and details.
