Many of today’s applications demand more memory bandwidth and capacity than discrete commodity memories, like DDR4, can deliver. The Virtex™ UltraScale+™ VU57P FPGA allows users to integrate power efficient compute capabilities with highest memory bandwidth and capacity while leveraging 58G PAM4 transceivers to double the data transmission rate. Virtex UltraScale+ VU57P FPGAs are ideal for latency-sensitive workloads that need to process large data sets with high throughput.

Next-Generation Firewall

Network operators desire uninterrupted, robust network availability, and intelligent management while securing data and avoiding malware attacks on enterprise networks. The Virtex UltraScale+ VU57P FPGA enables unmatched scalability for implementing multi-layer network security from VPNs to TLS level with 10s of millions of concurrent sessions with customized policies and controls while maintaining line-rate throughput and low latency. With 16G HBM, next-generation security appliances can manage multiple look-up tables while buffering and reordering network flows. 58G PAM4 transceivers enable support for the latest optical standards for scalability to higher throughput needed by next-generation firewalls.

Switches and Routers with QoS

Virtex UltraScale+ VU57P FPGA with 16G HBM enables an Nx400G/200G/100G/50G switch with a 400G datapath pipeline and traffic manager for QoS. 58G PAM4 transceivers enable connectivity to the latest optical standards and double the transmission rate to/from the primary switching function. Packet classification, switch and route look-up tables, and traffic manager queues for the switch are implemented in HBM. With power/thermal constraints​ in mind, Virtex UltraScale+ VU57P FPGA-based switches and routers can implement a less complex cooling mechanism with higher performance through lidless package options, which is critical to data center and telco infrastructure.
