The Intel® Programmable Acceleration Card with Intel Arria® 10 GX FPGA is the first field programmable gate array in the Dell EMC PowerEdge portfolio.
It provides the performance and versatility of FPGA acceleration and is supported by the Acceleration Stack for Intel® Xeon® CPU with FPGAs. This acceleration stack provides a common interface for both application and accelerator function developers, and includes drivers, application programming interfaces (APIs), and an FPGA interface manager. Together with acceleration libraries and development tools, the acceleration stack saves developers time and enables code re-use across multiple Intel FPGA platforms.
Server SupportWith its low-profile form factor, low-power dissipation, and passive heat sink, the card can be deployed in the following Dell EMC PowerEdge servers:
- PowerEdge R740 supports up to four FPGAs
- PowerEdge R740XD supports up to four FPGAs
- PowerEdge R640 supports up to one FPGA
The card will be of use to many market segments , such as big data analytics, artificial intelligence, genomics, video transcoding, cybersecurity, and financial trading.
