Proc10A PCIe x8 (Gen. 3) FPGA Computation Accelerators

The Proc10A™ system is a flexible, high performance, low-power FPGA platform based on Altera’s powerful Arria 10 FPGA. The Proc10A’s unique architecture balances high performance and flexibility to meet demanding and versatile HPC requirements.

 

With up to fifteen 14.2 Gb/s full-duplex transceivers and vast memory resources, the Proc10A offers tremendous I/O throughput along with powerful on-board processing and data management capabilities ideal for low latency, high performance HPC, storage, networking, and high-end imaging applications. A multi-level memory scheme includes up to 32 GB DDR3 ECC SODIMM, on-board 1 GB DDR3 SDRAM, dedicated FPGA memory blocks (M20K and MLABs), and other memory options.

 

In addition, the Proc10A hosts an 8-lane PCI Express Gen. 3 bridge that enables strong co-processing between the host CPU and the FPGA accelerator. For tightly-coupled FPGA and CPU processing, Gidel offers the Proc10A SoC family, with an embedded ARM processor based on the Arria 10 SoC FPGAs.

 

The Proc10A is supported by OpenCL, HLS, and Gidel’s innovative development tools, and enables high productivity based on C and HDL designs.
