Board Options

Looking for SmartNIC on a low-profile board? Or do you need a larger logic footprint or perhaps HBM2 memory for your application? Our board solutions include any of the UltraScale+ boards (including low-profile with HBM2) on our Xilinx PCIe boards page linked here ↗.

SmartNIC Shell:
Jumpstart your 100G NIC project


While there are some 100G FPGA-enabled NICs commercially available, few offer any significant level of customization at the hardware level.

For those who desire such customization, we’ve introduced SmartNIC Shell—a solution designed to combine high-performance hardware (XUPP3R) with a solid suite of 100G NIC IP, including features like TimeServo for precision timestamping, dual-channel DDR4 FIFO for line-rate buffering, and DPDK (via Arkville) on up to two Gen3 x16 PCIe interfaces for standards-based host interaction at high bandwidth.


StreamSurge 100G network load testing

Do you need a solution without doing your own hardware customization? We also provide network products that are designed for end-users such as StreamSurge, a 100G network load tester built on the same IP and hardware as SmartNIC.

Key Features

Quickly Build 100G NICs

Focus your attention on your unique application, instead of re-inventing a NIC.

TimeServo Timestamping

Precision time stamping including TimeServo 1588-compatible clock adjustments.

Match/Action Pipeline

Ultra-low latency pattern matching with DPDK-compatible L2 filter. User-configurable or use as a basis for further customization.

DDR4 FIFO

Using two banks of DDR4 for dropless, full speed 100 GbE DRAM buffer

DPDK

Standardized kernel bypass for host interaction over PCIe. Using optional SEP-to-PCIe accessory users can add a second Gen3 x16 PCIe interface for additional bandwidth.

Xilinx UltraScale+ FPGA

Large, powerful FPGA with ample room for user IP. Road map includes low-profile boards.

Upcoming Capabilities

We are targeting further BittWare boards for SmartNIC Shell compatibility, including low-profile cards and our upcoming FPGA boards with HBM2 integrated memory. We are also adding functionality to several of the IP areas including the match/action pipeline for additional off-the-shelf capabilities. Get in touch with us to learn more about future plans.
