Stratix Series: Stratix 10: Stratix 10 GX


BittWare’s S10VG4 is a Stratix 10 FPGA-based PCIe card ideal for high-density datacenter applications. With up to 2.7 million logic elements, the Stratix 10 FPGA gives designers incredible performance potential — yet with a power density that makes thermal management difficult. The S10VG4 meets this challenge with BittWare’s Viper platform, offering support for large FPGA loads, up to 32 GBytes of DDR4, and 4×100 Gbps Ethernet. OpenCL support enables a high-level software-like development flow, which greatly simplifies FPGA development. Viper Platform for Thermal Performance The S10VG4 is designed with BittWare’s Viper platform for thermal performance. The 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. High-Speed Networking and I/O The S10VG4 is enabled for high-speed networking with four front panel QSFP+ cages, each supporting 40/100GbE or four 10/25GbE channels. Serial expansion is available through two UltraPort SlimSAS connectors (16x 24Gbps) that can be connected to a second PCIe interface, another S10VG4, or other devices. A utility header provides a 1GbE interface, a PPS input, and a USB interface for debug and programming support. The USB features a built-in Intel USB-Blaster and is connected to the Board Management Controller. Memory The board’s flexible memory configuration includes four DIMM sites that support DDR4 SDRAM and QDR. Memory card options include up to 8 GBytes of DDR4 with optional error-correcting codes (ECC) or up 576 Mbits QDR (x36). The board also features flash memory for FPGA images. OpenCL Support The S10VG4 supports the OpenCL programming model, providing an incredibly powerful solution for system acceleration. Development tools include Intel's SDK for OpenCL.
