LMS Demos PCIe 5.0 on Agilex-powered ÜberNIC at Intel Vision 2023

We’re glad to see Liquid-Markets-Solutions (LMS) demonstrating their ÜberNIC, the first PCIe 5.0 and CXL-capable NIC running at the Intel® Vision 2023 event. Thanks to Micaela Whalen with Intel® for posting a clip of ÜberNIC running and reporting this was “the only Intel Agilex-based demo at the show.”

Built on BittWare hardware, ÜberNIC has some impressive performance numbers thanks to moving the entire network stack into the FPGA. We’ve got more details on the ÜberNIC product page.

It’s worth noting that for the demo, LMS also uses another BittWare card to run their Naros.TaSR testing and simulation solution. This can profile network-attached devices and systems, making Naros.TaSR ideally suited to quantify latency and throughput capabilities of various solutions. Both the Naros.TaSR and ÜberNIC cards were build by BittWare and feature Intel® Agilex® 7 FPGAs.

1,000 HD Feeds in a 1U Server: Arkona & Manifold Launch manifold CLOUD

TeraBox 1400B series servers and 520N-MX cards are offered for Manifold CLOUD.

Solution Leverages BittWare Hardware for Tier-1 Live Broadcast Infrastructure

Today’s broadcast video productions can involve a vast number of inputs (think e-gaming tournaments with hundreds of screens), outputs, and conversions. Improving the status quo for the video infrastructure side of these live events comes down to versatility and efficiency—and there’s a new approach that follows how datacenters have moved to a software-defined approach for web services.

It’s called manifold CLOUD, and BittWare is delighted to be a hardware provider for this exciting new solution for tier-1 live production. We’ll be providing more details on this exciting new solution soon!

Ready to learn more? arkona and Manifold are at NAB this week, including a live demo of manifold CLOUD on BittWare hardware. Come by booth C4345 to learn more or reach out to arkona or Manifold on their websites.

Built on BittWare: a 100G IPsec Accelerator

This week at MWC be sure to visit Sitehop as they have launched “The world’s first 100Gbps AES256GCM security solution with the fastest nanosecond encryption latency” using BittWare COTS FPGA cards.

Their SAFE100 solution provides an easy way to get multiple 100G encrypted network connections. The solution is based on BittWare COTS accelerators, giving Sitehop a distinct advantage in the market with a solid, reliable hardware platform for their customers. They are able to focus on the firmware design, which focuses on low latency, low power, and ease of use.

How easy? They released a demo video that shows two cards running at 100G, with secure certificates that can be added with a simple GUI. Their IPSec-compatible solution is 100% offloaded to the FPGA card, bringing power down to 35 watts fully loaded traffic and latency under 1us. All these without requiring any end-user programming!

The SAFE100 is gaining a lot of attention because we’ve taken something that can be very complicated and made it very simple. It’s a no-brainer
Melissa Chambers, CEO of Sitehop

It’s an excellent low-power, low-latency solution that includes their Enterprise Network Management System (pictured).
