2. System Requirements

  • Operating Systems (OS):
    • CentOS Linux version 7.6 kernel 4.19 with real time kernel support.
    • Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) version 8.2 kernel 4.18 with real time kernel support.

    For information about the latest OS support, refer to the Getting Started page.

  • Connectivity hardware for testing the Ethernet interfaces:
    • 25 Gbps QSFP28
While selecting a server, ensure that the server meets the following requirements (per slot):
  • Power
  • Cooling air flow
  • Physical dimension
For more information, refer to the Intel® FPGA Programmable Acceleration Card N3000-N Data Sheet or Intel FPGA Programmable Acceleration Card N3000 Data Sheet.
Note: Intel® FPGA PAC N3000-N (BD-NVV-N3000-3) has improved thermal characteristics as compared to the Intel FPGA PAC N3000 variant (BD-NVV-N3000-2), but both have the same dimensions.
Note: To compile an AFU using the Intel® Quartus® Prime Pro Edition software, your server must have at least 48 GB of system RAM.
