The Ensemble FCN8213 combines the general purpose processing capabilities of a dual Intel® Xeon E5 server architecture with FPGA co-processing from an Intel® Arria® 10 or Stratix® 10 FPGA device. By combining I/O, FPGA co-processing, and general-purpose Intel processing in a single ATCA blade, Mercury delivers a unique capability to the ATCA marketplace.The board supports unrestricted 40 Gb/s Ethernet and InfiniBand FDR10 fabric bandwidth to deliver scalable and unmatched general processing horsepower. Four QSFP fiber optic interfaces delivers streaming I/O to the front-panel of the module and an additional four x4 I/O interfaces to the Zone 3 user I/O region enables raw sensor data to stream directly into the FPGA. This allows optimized pre-processing and co-processing algorithms to operate on the data before handing it off to the Intel general purpose processing elements. The FPGA features 12 GB of DDR4-2133 memory in 3 banks to support co-processing operations, and is linked to the Intel Xeon processor complex by dual x8 Gen3 PCIe interfaces.The Ensemble FCN8213 brings additional I/O and/or storage capabilities to bear with its configurable AMC mezzanine site. The optimized mechanical cooling technology ensures the highest module and system MTBF even under full throttle, continuous processing conditions.
