Overview

Product Description

The Xilinx® Varium™ C1100 is a blockchain developer card designed to accelerate compute-intensive blockchain applications, including transaction validation and hash calculations used in most Proof of Work (PoW) and Proof of Stake (PoS) algorithms. The large FPGA Fabric on the Xilinx Varium C1100 card allows users to implement parallel computational pipelines and run multiple hashing algorithms in parallel to deliver the highest performance with the lowest power consumption.

Built on Xilinx UltraScale+ architecture, the Varium™ C1100 accelerator card provides a compact single slot, full-height, half-length form factor while operating up to 75W maximum power (passively cooled). The card features dual QSFP28 networking I/O capable of supporting 8 x 25 Gb/s, PCI Express® (PCIe®) Gen3x16 or gen4x8, and 8GB of HBM.

A USB interface provides debugging and programming support. It allows users access to the BMC for system monitoring and control, FPGA UART for bitstream connectivity, and FPGA JTAG for Vivado programming and debugging.

The Varium accelerator card can be easily programmed using Xilinx’s Vitis™ development environment, enables crypto miners to develop different mining algorithms in high-level programming languages such as C and C++.
