The exponential growth of data demands smart and adaptable network and data center solutions that deliver maximum throughput, high data-processing capability and the flexibility to adapt to evolving connectivity standards. To meet all of these requirements and more, we unveiled today the newest member in our UltraScale+ FPGA portfolio, the Xilinx Virtex UltraScale+ VU23P FPGA, delivering breakthrough performance for networking and storage applications. To quote “The Boss,” this new device is truly “Born to Run,” purpose-built with a unique mix of resources that enables highly efficient packet processing and scalable data bandwidth. The new VU23P FPGA delivers unparalleled performance with a powerful feature-set optimized for networking and storage acceleration.
The VU23P’s impressive specs include the highest ratio of look-up tables and embedded memory (block RAMs) to DSP slices in the Virtex UltraScale portfolio, enabling high-throughput processing within a fixed size and power envelope. It comes in packages as small as 35mmx35mm, delivering a lot of compute power in a small form factor, making it ideal for use in high-density server environments, including on SmartNICs. The device’s 58G PAM4 transceivers support up to 200G SmartNIC and network systems, with the latest connectivity capabilities—PCIe Gen 4—for maximum I/O bandwidth.
Here are a few of the applications that can reap dramatic benefits from VU23P FPGA acceleration:
Smart designers of next-gen networking and storage systems will run (not walk) to beat out the competition in benefiting from this ground-breaking device. To learn more, check out www.xilinx.com/vu23p
