FPGA Cards

The TeraBox 2000D is a 2U FPGA server based on the Dell PowerEdge R740 chassis. This server offers single or dual Intel Xeon Scalable CPUs along with high PCIe slot density. With configurations of up to seven low-profile cards or three of BittWare’s large double-width cards, this server is an excellent premium option for the 2U form factor. Dell ProSupport options are also available.

System Management

For system management, BittWare’s FPGA cards are equipped with a Board Management Controller (BMC), which accepts IPMI 2.0 commands. Use it along with BittWare’s BittWorks II Toolkit to program the FPGA over USB, monitor card power and temperature, and re-program the onboard clocks. You’ll also be able to set points to shut down the card when it gets too hot, access JTAG, or access the software tools remotely.

Coming soon: BittWare support for PLDM and Dell’s iDRAC management.

The TeraBox Advantage

Choosing a TeraBox FPGA server means knowing you are getting a pre-configured and tested solution. This includes setup and installation of your FPGA cards and associated hardware, your choice of operating system, and development tools. Your TeraBox arrives ready for use—giving your team more time for development and deployment.
