Xilinx,Inc. showcasted FPGA based 80Gbps NIC(Network Interface Card) for the first time in the industry across the world. Xilinx also demonstrated FPGA connecting to the new Intel® Xeon® E5-2600 v2 processor via the QPI(Intel QuickPath Interconnect) protocol.
80Gbps Network Interface Card
The Xilinx 80Gbps NIC is based on a single All Programmable device which implements a Traffic Manager SmartCORE IP, DMA controller, the PCIe ports, and the two 40G Ethernet ports, replacing two ASSPs for superior throughput,low power consumption etc.
Intel QPI Interface
The Intel QPI Interface solution offers developers a high-performance and low latency FPGA based interface for Intel processors. This demonstration includes a Xilinx® 7 series FPGA communicating with the Intel Xeon E5 2600 V2 processor through QPI interface(1.1).
Xilinx is world leader in providing All Programmable ,SoCs,FPGAs & 3D-ICs.
