Product overview

The XpressV7LP-HE board is a low-profile PCIe  add-in card engineered for low-latency, high performance network computing. Based on a Xilinx Virtex-7 FPGA, the card features 50Gbit of direct-attached Ethernet connectivity, a PCIe Gen3 x8 host interface, and abundant memory resources including DDR3 SDRAM and QDR2+ SRAM.

Benefits & features

  • Highly integrated, production-optimized COTS board reduces time-to-market and risk
  • Low profile half height PCI Express card integrates into any computing platform, including 1U rackmount servers
  • PCI Express Gen 3 x8 coupled with PLDA's advanced DMA IP enables highest bandwidth to server memory
  • 2 x 4GB DDR3 SDRAM + 2 x 144Mb QDR2+
  • Advanced power management enables single supply through PCIe slot connector
