The HawkEye is low-profile PCIe accelerator based on Intel® Arria® 10 FPGAs. The platform boasts up to 18 GB DDR4 on-board memory, up to 4 SFP+ links for a maximum of 56 Gbps, and a PCIe x8 Gen. 3 host interface.The Arria 10 FPGA provides up to 480K LEs and IEEE floating-point capability. The HawkEye's memory scheme comprises embedded SRAM memory with ~6.0 TB/s throughput, 1-2 GB DDR4, and up to 16 GB of DDR4 SoDIMM (only for boards with 480 devices). The DDR memory may be accessed via up to 48 parallel ports. In addition to abundant GPIOs that include RS422, Optocoupler, External clock, LVDS, LVTTL (3V), 30V/0.9A output, the HawkEye is designed with dedicated features tailored for vertical markets such as network security and HFT.The HawkEye can operate as a PCIe-based platform or as a stand-alone compute accelerator. The system has been designed for exceptional high reliability with an MTBF beyond 1 Million hours simultaneously. The HawkEye accelerator board exhibits an impressive power efficiency starting from less than 15W.
