ExaNIC X100

ULTRA LOW LATENCY DUAL-PORT QSFP28 NETWORK INTERFACE CARD

The ExaNIC X100 is a high density, low latency network adapter, featuring dual QSFP28 ports, with 8 lanes capable of running at up to 25Gbps each.

Users will find this drop-in replacement NIC accelerates low latency application performance to previously unachievable levels.

The device features an advanced free and open source software interface optimized for low latency network processing. Features include: zero latency programmable receive steering, cut-through packet streaming, pre-loaded packet transmission, and TCP/IP acceleration.

The ExaNIC X100 is built using the latest generation of Xilinx Ultrascale+ FPGA. Users can make use of the FPGA by offloading critical network processing functions directly into the NIC, while maintaining the ease of use and administration of a production grade network adapter. It optionally ships with 4GB of DDR4 memory for custom use.

*25GbE support expected with upcoming firmware update
