La Jolla, CA, April 07, 2018 --(PR.com
)-- Dini Group announces the immediate availability of the DNPCIE_400G_VU_LL
, a Xilinx UltraScale+ FPGA board with a capacity of 20 million ASIC gates. This product is optimized for custom network applications such as inline packet processing using TOE
(TCP/IP Offload) and line speed algorithmic trading. The DNPCIE_400G_VU_LL joins a long list of FPGA-based network-targeted products from Dini Group, the industry’s established leader in large FPGA platforms.
The DNPCIE_400G_VU_LL is a full-height, medium length PCIe board with a single Xilinx UltraScale+ FPGA, five banks of DDR4 memory, and a single bank of QDRII+ memory.
High speed, low latency memory is a critical resource for algorithmic acceleration and the UltraScale+ FPGAs dramatically increase the amount of internal memory by adding UltraRAM blocks. The DNPCIE_400G_VU_LL utilizes the B2104 package. Sixteen high-speed transceivers are used for a 16-lane GEN4 PCIe interface. Four sets of four of the high-speed transceivers are connected to QSFP28 sockets for four separate 40 GbE/100GbE Ethernet ports or up to 16 channels of 10 GbE.
Five possible UltraScale+ FPGAs can be stuffed with the largest device, the VU13P, containing 20M ASIC gates with more than 12k, 27x18 multipliers. Five Virtex UltraScale and two Kintex UltraScale devices round out the possible FPGA stuffing options.
The DNPCIE_400G_VU_LL supports five independent PC2400 DDR4 banks. Four banks are configured as 1G x 16 (2GB), and a single bank is configured as 1G x 64 (8GB) for a total of 16GB. For data lookup that requires absolute minimum latency, the DNPCIE_400G_VU_LL has a QDRII+ memory connected as 1Mx18 with options to 4M x 18.
“We made this new UltraScale+ board as fast and as versatile as possible,” says Mike Dini, president, “It is perfectly suited for cluster deployment in co-location spaces or exchanges. Network applications and High Frequency/Low Latency Algorithmic Trading can enjoy line speed communications and packet processing with this little jewel.”
Dini Group is an established leader in large, FPGA-based boards, critical IP, and systems. Dini Group FPGA boards are used in large quantities for ASIC and SOC prototyping, low-latency trading, and high-performance computing. From their corporate campus in La Jolla, California, Dini Group employees have supplied over twelve billion ASIC gates.
