- Mouser to Distribute Accelerator Cards Based on Intel and Xilinx FPGAs
- The card is available in air- or liquid-cooled options
- Customers can create remote with direct connections to NVMe storage arrays via OCuLink expansion connectors
Mouser Electronics, Inc has announced a global distribution agreement with BittWare, a Molex company. Through the agreement, Mouser now stocks high-end card-level solutions from BittWare, based on FPGA technology from Intel and Xilinx.
BittWare’s XUP-VV8 FPGA accelerator card integrates a Xilinx Virtex UltraScale+ VU13P FPGA in a 3/4-length PCIe board with large logic resources up to 3.8M logic cells as well as 455 Mbits of embedded memory. The card is available in air- or liquid-cooled options and includes four QSFP-DD (double-density) cages for maximum port density.
About the deal
“We are delighted to offer BittWare’s portfolio of FPGA accelerator products to Mouser customers around the world,” said Andy Kerr, Vice President, Supplier Management for Mouser Electronics. “Design engineers and purchasing professionals can turn to Mouser for same-day shipping of BittWare’s innovative compute, network, storage and sensor processing products.”
“Mouser is well-known for its worldwide distribution and support system,” said Darren Taylor, Vice President of Sales at BittWare. “We are excited to enter into this relationship. With distribution through Mouser, we can draw on their expertise in delivering leading-edge technologies and expand our global customer base.”
Computational Storage Drives
BittWare’s enterprise-class products dramatically increase application performance and energy efficiency while reducing total cost of ownership. These FPGA-based products further extend parent company Molex’s broad offering of networking and storage interconnect solutions. BittWare products include the 250-SoC accelerator card, which features a Xilinx Zynq UltraScale+ MPSoC with a high-performance Arm-based multicore, multiprocessing system. Customers can create remote, disaggregated storage solutions or computational storage drives with direct connections to NVMe storage arrays via OCuLink expansion connectors.
About the card
The 520N FPGA accelerator card is designed for compute acceleration and features an Intel Stratix 10 GX FPGA directly coupled to four independent banks of DDR4 memory. Four 100G network ports allow for card-to-card scaling independent of the PCIe bus. The 520N is compatible with the Intel OpenCL SDK.
The XUP-P3R is also a 3/4-length PCIe x16 card, featuring a Xilinx Virtex UltraScale+ VU9P FPGA. The XUP-P3R features multiple expansion ports for customers who wish to quickly adapt the card for specific application requirements. A Board Management Controller (BMC) takes care of advanced system monitoring, which greatly simplifies platform integration and management. The card is available with support for up to 512 GBytes of memory and includes four front panel QSFP cages, each supporting up to 100 Gbps.
