Key Features

  • Dual Intel Arria 10 FPGAs 10A1150GX speed grade 2
  • Active and passive cooling options
  • PCIe x16 interface supporting Gen1, Gen2, or Gen3
  • Up to 32 GBytes DDR4 (4 banks per FPGA)
  • Board Support Packages (BSP) for Intel OpenCL SDK
  • Typical Power Consumption: up to 150 watts (50% of Tesla-class GPU card)
  • FPGA-to-FPGA Serial Links
  • FPGA Configuration Functions (JTAG, Remote Flash Update, Reconfiguration, Fallback Mechanism, etc.)
  • On-board System Manager (USB and FPGA access)
  • USB-Blaster II for Intel FPGA JTAG tools
  • Board Health Monitoring (Temperatures, Power, Voltages, etc.)
  • Unique Board Data in PROM
  • Configurable User Clocking Options
  • USB Daisy-Chain Option inside Host Server

510T Compute Acceleration Card deliverables include an optimized Board Support Package compatible with the Intel Software Development Kit (SDK) for OpenCL. This allows the card to be programmed at a high level of abstraction by customers unfamiliar with hardware-based tool flows historically required for FPGAs.
