ExaNIC V5P

HIGH DENSITY NETWORK APPLICATION CARD

The ExaNIC V5P is an FPGA based network application card, specifically optimized for low-latency and high density datacenter applications. The device is built around a powerful Virtex Ultrascale Plus (VU5P) FPGA, packaged into a compact, half-height half-length, form factor and paired with 9GB of DDR4 DRAM and 28MB of QDR-IV SRAM.

The power of the ExaNIC V5P is unlocked by combining it with Exablaze's high performance Firmware Development Kit (FDK). The FDK provides a complete development environment for building high performance network applications, including:

  • Ultra-Low Latency PCS/MAC.
  • Low-latency, high-throughput PCIe DMA engine.
  • DDR4 and QDR IV memory access controllers.
  • Timing, signaling and register interfaces including I2C.
  • Packet field extractor and frame multiplexer (with source code).
  • Asynchronous FIFO and CDC modules (with source code).

Like all ExaNICs, the ExaNIC V5P functions out of the box as a high performance network adapter. The entire ExaNIC open-source software library is available, including the ExaSOCK sockets application acceleration system and the libexanic userspace direct access API.
