Product overview

The XpressGX S10-FH201G is a full-height PCIe Network Processing board, featuring the Intel® Stratix® 10 FPGA with support for up to 200 GB Ethernet.

The Stratix® 10 GX 2800 PCIe board is based on a Stratix® 10 GX FPGA. This device is optimized for FPGA applications that require high transceiver bandwidth and core fabric performance.

The FPGA board is delivered with a 1-slot PCI-Express passive heatsink, and is specifically optimized for embedded applications.

To optimize customer memory needs, the board offers on-board and external memory (DDR4 and QDRII type). A customizable QDR2+ Xtrem RDIMM can be developed.

Target markets include data centers and cloud computing, finance, high-performance computing, military and defense, broadcasting and video.

Benefits & features

  • Full height PCIe board using Intel Stratix® 10 GX 2800 KLE FPGAs
  • Designed for Acceleration and Low Latency Applications
  • PCIe Gen3 x16
  • 3 independent banks on board DDR4
  • 2 independent banks on board QDR2+Xtrem
  • Dual QSFP28 optical cages, 10/25/40/100 GbE ports

The main advantage of the Stratix® 10 GX 2800 board is it 200 Gigabit Ethernet standard compatibility, specially designed for low-latency applications.

Our Stratix® 10 GX 2800 PCIe board offers primary interfaces and components, such as memory (on-board and external, DDR4 and QDRII+), PCB, HDMI connector, CPU processor, Ethernet, JTAG, a USB port, FPGA, PCI express x16, FireFly connectors, power supply, high-speed transceivers, and more.

The FPGA is a Stratix® 10 GX.

The Stratix® 10 is one of the best-performing and latest FPGA families developed by Intel®. Delivering an unprecedented doubled performance, up to 70% lower power (leading to lower power consumption), up to 10.2 million LEs, and the highest level of system integration, the Intel® Stratix® 10 processor is uniquely positioned to address next-generation, high-performance systems in the most demanding applications. This semiconductor device is optimized for FPGA applications that require the highest transceiver bandwidth and core fabric performance.

FPGAs (field programmable gate arrays) are used to offer high-capacity logic and memory storage.

Unlike a low-profile board, the form factor of the Stratix® 10 GX 2800 board is a full-height 1-slot, specially designed to fit into various servers and chassis from the market, as well as the custom rack systems of embedded applications.

The Peripheral Component Interconnect Express, commonly known as PCI Express, is a high-speed serial computer expansion bus standard. Our FPGA board offers a PCI-Express x16 slot. Added to an Intel® Stratix® 10 FPGA, it makes our boards quick and efficient.

We draw on our firmware, hardware, and software skills, and available schematics, datasheets and design tools to significantly reduce the time to market for your embedded project.

Unlike development kits, this FPGA board is designed for large-scale production.

The Stratix® 10 GX 2800 board is RoHS and REACH standard compliant.


Our Stratix® 10 GX 2800 board is specially designed for customer needs and specifications.
