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.


BittWare’s XUP-VVH is an UltraScale+ VU37P FPGA-based PCIe card ideal for high-density datacenter applications that demand high memory bandwidth. The UltraScale+ FPGA helps these demanding applications avoid I/O bottlenecks with integrated High Bandwidth Memory (HBM2) tiles on the FPGA that support up to 8 GBytes of memory at 460 GBytes/sec.

Along with the integrated memory, the UltraScale+ VU37P offers up to 2.8 million logic elements, which gives designers incredible performance potential — yet with a power density that makes thermal management difficult. The XUP-VVH meets this challenge with BittWare’s Viper platform, supporting large FPGA loads, up to 256 GBytes DDR4, and 4x 100 Gbps Ethernet.

BittWare’s Viper platform uses advanced computer flow simulation to drive the physical board design in a thermals first approach, including the use of heat pipes, airflow channels, and arranging components to maximize the limited available airflow in a server. Viper boards are passive by default, with active cooling as an option.
