prodesign FALCON Stratix® 10 Acceleration Card

Prodesign board 2022 1029 FALCON

The FALCON acceleration card offers Altera® Stratix® 10 FPGA technology with high throughput HBM2 memory integration. The board is based on PCIe Gen3 x16 and offers four 100GE QSFP-DD front ports supporting 8x 100Gbit/s or 4x 200Gbit/s. Further, it offers three programmable SODIMM sockets and three high-speed NovaRay® connectors for connecting multiple memory modules or peripherals.

Supporting HDL, oneAPI, OpenCL flows.
