The HES-XCKU11P-DDR4 1U form factor board is built around a Xilinx Kintex UltraScale+ FPGA, a PCIe interface and two QSFP-DD connectors, which totals a bandwidth of up to 400Gbit/s The accelerator is intended to hit the ideal sweet spot between speed, logic cells, low power draw and price.
The board has an FMC HPC connector to add any of Aldec’s wide range of FMC daughter cards. The HPC connector is compliant with the ANSI/VITA 57.1 standard to easily connect to other compliant peripherals.
The board is able to add an external DDR4 memory module through the SO-DIMM memory socket. The latest generation of QSFP-DD connectors allow network acceleration and wired communication projects. The Xilinx Kintex Ultrascale+ device which powers the board is the XCKU11P-FFVE1517 (-3 speed grade), which features 653K system logic cells, 597K CLB flip-flops, 299K CLB LUTs, 21.1Mb total block RAM, 22.5Mb UltraRAM, and 2,928 DSP slices.
