BittWare's S5-PCIe (S5PE) is a PCIe x8 card based on the high-bandwidth, power-efficient Intel® Stratix® V GX or GS FPGA. Designed for high-end applications, the Stratix V provides a high level of system integration and flexibility for I/O, routing, and processing. The S5PE is a flexible and efficient solution for high-performance network and signal processing. The board provides up to 16 GB of DDR3 SDRAM with optional error-correcting codes (ECC). It also provides two front-panel QSFP+ cages for serial I/O, which support 10G per lane direct to the FPGA for reduced latency, making it ideal for high frequency trading and networking applications. The S5PE also features a Board Management Controller (BMC) for advanced system monitoring, which greatly simplifies platform management.
