The NetFPGA-SUME board is the ideal platform for high-performance and
high-density networking design. A collaborative effort between Digilent,
the University of Cambridge and Stanford University, the NetFPGA-SUME
has everything you need to conduct cutting edge research and development
of state-of-the-art networking systems.
The NetFPGA-SUME is an amazingly advanced board that features one of the
largest and most complex FPGA’s ever produced, a Xilinx Virtex-7 690T
supporting thirty 13.1 GHz GTH transceivers. Four SFP+ 10Gb/s ports,
five independent high-speed memory banks built from both 500MHzQDRII+
& 1866MT/s DDR3 SoDIMM devices, and an eight-lane third generation
PCIe offer incredible throughput and can sustain a large number of
high-speed data streams to the FPGA fabric and memory devices. Other
features include the presentation of twenty transceivers in total on FMC
and QTH expansion connectors, and SATA ports.
The NetFPGA-SUME's main mission is to give students, researchers and
developers a state-of-the-art platform for networking, whether it’s
learning the fundamentals or creating new hardware and software
applications. This board easily supports simultaneous wire-speed
processing on the four 10Gb/s Ethernet ports, and it can manipulate and
process data on-board, or stream it over the 8x Gen.3 PCIe interface and
the expansion interfaces.
This board is supported by a large collection of free IP blocks available at www.netfpga.org.
