BittWare, a Molex Company has announced a strategic collaboration with Achronix Semiconductor to introduce the S7t-VG6 PCIe accelerator product, a feature-rich PCIe card sporting the new Achronix 7nm Speedster 7t FPGA.

This next generation product offers a range of capabilities including low-cost and highly flexible GDDR6 memories that offer HBM-class memory bandwidth, high-performance machine learning processors and a revolutionary 2D network-on-chip for high bandwidth and energy-efficient data movement.

“BittWare has a thirty-year track record of successfully designing and deploying advanced processing technologies for demanding applications,” said Jeff Milrod, President of BittWare. “Achronix is bringing fresh approaches, architectures and implementations to the FPGA market that we are excited to leverage with the introduction of our S7t card.

“We will now be able to offer leading memory bandwidths, as well as high-speed storage, network and host interfaces while achieving new levels of price/performance and energy efficiency. I am confident that the innovations in the Speedster7t combined with BittWare’s extensive experience and depth of accelerator card IP will provide compelling platforms for data centre, cloud infrastructure and enterprise solutions.”

Robert Blake, CEO, Achronix, added: “We are delighted to collaborate with BittWare and the wider Molex group, to launch the new VectorPath S7t accelerator card. Market response to the new Achronix Speedster7t FPGA family has been overwhelmingly positive.

“In order to provide our customers with the ability to rapidly evaluate and go into volume production with the Speedster7t devices at card and server-level, we needed a partner with the deep design expertise and logistical scale needed to supply our growing global customer base. BittWare, as the market-leader in FPGA-based PCIe cards and servers, was the clear choice.”

The BittWare VectorPath accelerator card is designed for high-performance and high-bandwidth data applications and features the following hardware capabilities:

  • One 400GbE and two 100GbE interfaces.
  • Eight banks of GDDR6 memory with 4Tbps aggregate bandwidth.
  • A total of 20Tbps 2D Network-on-Chip (NoC).
  • One bank of DDR4 running at 2666MHz with ECC.
  • PCIe compliance and certification.
  • A total of 692K six-input LUTs.
