fb4XG@V7 FPGA Card

Quad Port SFP+ 1/10 Gigabit Ethernet PCI Express FPGA Card

The fb4XG@7 series is a high performance OEM hardware platform for 10 Gigabit Ethernet with quad port SFP+ network interface. The standard configuration is based on Xilinx Virtex7 VX690T FPGA.

The card is also offered with a variety of different FPGAs to provide flexibility for the intended application.

As an optional feature, the card can be fitted with two SATA connectors which can provide connectivity to a wide range of standard storage devices directly to the FPGA NIC.
