BittWare FPGA Cards

The TeraBox 1000S supports a single- or dual-width BittWare PCIe FPGA card. Choose from a variety of cards based on Achronix Speedster 7t, Intel Stratix 10/Arria 10, or Xilinx UltraScale+ FPGAs.

Card specs vary depending on the FPGA card you select. For example, some cards support up to 512 GBytes of DDR4. Our latest UltraScale+ cards feature QSFP-DDs, which you can use with a breakout cable for up to 8x 100Gb interfaces.

Development Support

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.

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.
