BittWare's A10P3S is a 3/4-length PCIe x8 card based on the Intel® Arria® 10 GX/SX FPGA and SoC. The Arria 10 boasts high densities and a power-efficient FPGA fabric married with a rich feature set including high-speed transceivers up to 28 Gbps, hard floating-point DSP blocks, and embedded Gen3 PCIe x8. The Arria 10 SX variant also features a dual-core ARM® Cortexâ„¢-A9 MPCoreâ„¢ hard processor system (HPS). The board offers flexible memory configurations supporting over 40 GBytes of memory, sophisticated clocking and timing options, and four front panel QSFP cages, each supporting up to 40 Gbps. The A10P3S also incorporates a Board Management Controller (BMC) for advanced system monitoring, which greatly simplifies platform management. All of these features combine to make the A10P3S ideal for a wide range of applications, including network processing and security, compute and storage, instrumentation, broadcast, and SigInt.Built on 20 nm process technology, the Arria 10 FPGAs and SoCs feature industry-leading programmable logic that integrates a rich feature set of embedded peripherals, embedded high-speed transceivers, hard memory controllers, and protocol IP controllers. The SX variant of the FPGA also incorporates a dual-core ARM® Cortexâ„¢-A9 MPCoreâ„¢ hard processor system (HPS). Variable-precision digital signal processing (DSP) blocks integrated with hardened floating point (IEEE 754-compliant) enable the Arria 10 to deliver floating point performance of up to 1.5 TFLOPS. The FPGA supports Gen3 PCIe x8 via hard IP blocks and provides up to 1150K equivalent LEs.
