2.3. Hardware Installation

Follow these instructions to install the Intel® FPGA PAC in your server.

  1. Open your server chassis.
  2. Identify an available PCIe slot with enough clearance to house the Intel® FPGA PAC. For slots that can receive a full-length PCIe* card, Intel recommends that you use the provided extension mounting bracket to secure the card edge for additional support.
  3. Remove any I/O panel covers for the slot you are using.
  4. Install the Intel® FPGA PAC in the PCIe* slot by inserting the PCIe* x16 edge connector and ensuring the card retention hook is properly engaged.
  5. Use the two screws provided to secure the I/O panel bracket to the server chassis. If you are using the extension bracket, secure the extension bracket to the server.
  6. Connect the 2 x 4-pin 12 V auxiliary power cable from the server to the matching 2 x 4-pin power connector on the Intel® FPGA PAC.
  7. Reinstall the chassis cover.
