FPGA Server

TeraBox 1401B and 1402B

Extreme Density Standard-Depth FPGA Server

Choice of AMD EPYC 7002 series or Intel 3rd Gen Xeon CPU

Overview

At the extreme of FPGA server density, the TeraBox 1401B/1402B give the highest level of compute and network capability in a 1U chassis. These servers provides twice the density of the typical 4U server and the power of 4 of our largest Achronix Speedster7t, Intel Stratix 10 or Xilinx UltraScale+ FPGAs. These innovative products support PCIe Gen4 and feature an AMD EPYC or Intel Xeon processor in a standard rack depth chassis.

Generation 4.0

Double the Bandwidth!

The TeraBox 1401B/1402B are ready for Gen4-equipped cards with twice the bandwidth per lane of Gen3.

BittWare FPGA Cards

The TeraBox 1401B and 1402B support up to four dual-slot BittWare PCIe FPGA cards. Choose from a variety of cards based on the Speedster 7t, Stratix 10, or UltraScale+ FPGAs. System specs will vary greatly, depending on the FPGA card you select. For example, with four BittWare UltraScale+ PCIe cards, which support up to 512 Gbytes of DDR4 per card, the chassis can support as much as 2 Terabytes of DDR4 on the FPGA cards in 16 banks. With four Agilex cards using breakout cables, each chassis supports 48x 100GbE.

BittWare 1U Server

The TeraBox 1401B/1402B servers are exclusive to BittWare and are the ideal platform to unleash the energy-efficient acceleration of BittWare’s FPGA cards. This FPGA-optimized 1U server delivers unrivaled performance density and value for a range of compute-intensive applications, including machine learning.

The server is assembled in the USA, is TAA compliant, and offers a 3-year warranty.
