Board Category: Development Kit

Components & Interface: Expansion: Generic; Industry Standard: Ethernet, RS232, USB Device; Video: ASI

End Market: Broadcast, Computer & Storage, Consumer, Industrial, Medical, Military, Test & Measurement, Wireless, Wireline

Technology: General Purpose

Arria Series: Intel® Arria® 10: Intel® Arria® 10 GX

Board Feature: General User IO: LED


The 3DR-A10-GPGPU module follows the 3DR topology, so it can be used in combination with other 3DR-compatible boards to add parallel processing power to a system. The AMD GE420CIAJ44HM APU and the Radeon E8860 GPU can deliver nearly 1 TFLOPS when combined. The Arria® 10 can deliver an additional 900 GFLOPS. A 2-link, 4GB Hybrid Memory Cube connects to the FPGA providing an aggregate memory bandwidth of 120 GB/s. Off-board connectivity includes PCIe Gen3, LVDS, and SERDES in all three dimensions as well as one GbE port (APU) and one 10/100 Ethernet (K61), JTAG, and USB-to-UART. The variety of available standard interfaces promotes network connectivity with a wide range of third party systems and subsystems. This includes commercially available switches and routers and promotes the integration of a system-of-systems in a net-centric environment.The 3DR standard microcontroller architecture is interfaced through the I2C bus to provide FPGA, APU, GPU, and PCIe switch temperature as well as voltage and current monitoring for automatic shut-down during critical over-heat and/or voltage conditions.As with all modules which follow the 3DR topology, the GPU module supports 3-D connectivity, allowing the user to stack and/or tile modules to address a wide variety of processing, I/O, size, weight, and power requirements.
