FPGA Features (Hard IP)
The ADM-PCIE-8K5 is a half-length, low profile, PCI Express Add-In Card featuring the powerful and efficient Xilinx Kintex UltraScale KU115-2 FPGA.
The ADM-PCIE-8K5 features two independent channels of DDR4 memory capable of 2400MT/s (fitted with two 8GB ECC banks as standard 16GB - optional 32GB available), dual SFP+ cages providing 2x 10GbE/16G Fiber Channel (Gen 5) capability. Dual Firefly connectors for up to 4x16Gbps per connector. Voltage/temperature/current control and monitoring. The board is supplied with an air-cooled heat sink and optional fan for development systems without sufficient airflow over the PCIe slots. For deployment in rack-mount server systems the fan is not required (passive cooling).

The board management logic has the ability to monitor temperature, voltage, and current of the system to check on the operation of the board. The monitoring is implemented using a microcontroller providing a host USB interface The information can also be accessed directly from the microcontroller over the USB interface on the front panel. When enabled**, IPMI can also be used to communicate with the system monitor, allowing for remote communication and management with the ADM-PCIE-8K5.
** IPMI is disabled by default and should only be enabled when the board is installed in an IPMI compliant system. Please contact the factory for details on enabling IPMI on the ADM-PCIE-8K5
The USB/JTAG Interface is compatible with all of the Xilinx Vivado® Tools.
