Dual Intel Arria® 10 GT/GX/SX FPGA PCIe Board with Dual 12x Avago Fiber Optic, QSFP, and HMC

The A10PED from BittWare is a full-length PCIe x8 card featuring two Intel Arria 10 GT/GX/SX FPGAs. The board offers flexible memory configurations, supporting a Hybrid Memory Cube along with over 64 GBytes of memory. Two 12x Avago fiber optic modules and a QSFP cage provide high-speed, low-latency I/O direct to the FPGAs. The A10PED also incorporates a Board Management Controller (BMC) for advanced system monitoring, which greatly simplifies platform management.
