Nikhilon’s 2037-01 PCI Express backplane is designed to support up to eighteen PCIe plug-in I/O cards and a PICMG 1.3 single board computer. Four of the two x8 PCIe mechanical card slots are driven with x8 PCIe electrical links. The remaining Sixteen x16 mechanical card slots are driven with x4 PCIe electrical links.
FPGA-based acceleration platforms include PCIe*-based programmable acceleration cards and others that are supported by the Acceleration Stack for CPU with FPGAs.
Market-specific Accelerator Functions are now available through the expansion of the FPGA Design Solutions Network(DSN) Program.
These DSN members are delivering new Accelerator Functions—specific software IP that can speed up complex computations. In combination with the Xilinx FPGA, with the Algorithm Functions provide unique solutions that accelerate big data applications such as AI inference, real-time data analytics, cybersecurity, genomics and more, helping customers to supercharge server and data centre performance and while lowering their total cost of ownership.
