TeraBox 2000D

Reliable, Proven 2U FPGA Server

Legacy Product Notice:

This is a legacy product and is not recommended for new designs. It is still available for purchase, but development tools and software are no longer maintained for compatibility with the latest FPGA tools and operating systems. Minimum order quantities (MOQs) may apply. Contact BittWare for details.


We’ve integrated one of the most popular 2U data center servers from Dell EMC with our full lineup of Achronix, AMD, or Intel based FPGA cards. BittWare’s TeraBox 2000D combines a high-powered dual-CPU (Intel Xeon Scalable) host with high-density FPGA resources.

Configurations include three of BittWare’s large double-width cards using Achronix , Altera, or AMD FPGAs. Users seeking maximum logic/memory density can choose the XUP-VV4 for 11M logic cells and 1.5TB FPGA-attached DDR4 memory.

Up to six low-profile cards* can also be configured, such as the XUP-PL4 with UltraScale+ FPGA. No matter which configuration you choose, you’re getting BittWare’s installation and support, plus options for Dell server support.

* In a system with six low-profile cards, four would have x16 slots, and two would have x8.

2U Server

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 six 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.
