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).

Start Your Next SmartNIC Project with This

At BittWare, we’re big believers in saving customer’s development time through off-the-shelf IP that lets them focus on their unique application. We’re pleased to introduce a free, open-source, 100G NIC “starter” IP in Corundum, with support for our AMD- (formerly Xilinx) and Intel-based FPGA boards. Corundum is 100% open-source Verilog.

Not only free, but Corundum can also be used in commercial projects, and includes an excellent feature set as a starter for building a SmartNIC. Learn more about Corundum on the product page and get started accelerating your network packet processing projects today!

New 200G Capture Solution

Need to capture high-bandwidth data to a host without engaging an FPGA development team? The new TK242 from Atomic Rules gives you lossless 200G capture from a single BittWare card! Two streams of 100GbE move over PCIe Gen4 x16, ready to connect with your host application–no FPGA programming required! Learn more on the product page.

Eastronics Embedded Technologies Conference

BittWare distributor Eastronics is hosted their Embedded Technologies Conference on January 25, 2023 in Israel. BittWare was represented with our latest FPGA acceleration boards featuring Intel® Agilex™ 7 devices.

Year-End Summary 2022

As we wrap up 2022, we wanted to share some new content we’ve posted for your reading: an article on Homomorphic Encryption and our overview of FPGAs for Neural Network inference.

We also wanted to share some of the products and content we announced this year: AMD Xilinx Versal cards, Intel Agilex cards with PCIe Gen5/CXL and our growing library of IP and Solutions from partners.

Finally, our HPC webinar is an excellent chance to see oneAPI on our IA-840f card for a real-world HPC workload.

We are looking forward to many more exciting things in 2023 and wish you the best this holiday season!

This unique approach to encryption holds enormous potential, but with heavy compute required, can FPGAs help drive adoption?

Read the latest on inference of neural networks using FPGA devices, including vendor-specific optimizations.

Learn about our latest cards featuring AMD Xilinx Versal Premium ACAPs! We have two cards for low-profile and full-size form factor options: AX-840p and AX-440p.

We added to our Intel Agilex FPGA-powered lineup with PCIe Gen5 cards supporting CXL: the IA-860m, IA-640i, and IA-440i.

What We’re Showing at SC22 in Dallas

Visit us at SC22 is this week in Dallas, Texas! Our booth is 1819, so be sure to come by and chat about the latest news.

Tap into PCIe Gen5 x16, CXL, DDR5 and HBM2e with our next-gen Intel Agilex FPGA-powered cards, the IA-860mIA-640i and IA-440i.

Our Versal™ Early Access Program includes two PCIe ACAP cards, the AX-840p and AX-440p. Each features an AMD Xilinx Versal ACAP.

Of course, there's more to see at our booth at SC, so be sure to come by this week!
