We’ve integrated one of the most popular 2U data center servers from Dell EMC with our full lineup of Achronix, Intel, and Xilinx FPGA-based cards. BittWare’s TeraBox 2102D combines a high-powered dual-CPU (3rd Generation Intel Xeon Scalable) host with high-density FPGA resources.
Configurations include two of BittWare’s large double-width cards using Achronix Speedster 7t, Intel Agilex, or Xilinx Virtex UltraScale+ FPGAs. The system can also be configured with six** low-profile cards or up to eight of BittWare’s U.2 accelerators. No matter which configuration you choose, you’re getting BittWare’s installation and support, plus options for Dell server support.
Up to 2 double-wide FPGA cards can be configured or
6** single-width cards
The TeraBox 2102D is a 2U FPGA server based on the Dell PowerEdge R750 chassis. This server offers dual 3rd generation Intel Xeon Scalable CPUs along with high PCIe slot density. With configurations of up to six low-profile cards or two 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.
For system management, BittWare’s FPGA cards are equipped with a Board Management Controller (BMC), which accepts PLDM commands. Use it along with BittWare’s Software Development Kit 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.
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.
The TeraBox 2102D supports many of BittWare’s Achronix, Intel, or Xilinx FPGA-based PCIe cards. The table below lists specifications for some of our certified cards*:
