The ADM-PCIE-9V3 is a half-length, low profile, PCI Express® Add-In Card featuring the powerful and efficient Xilinx Virtex Ultrascale™ Plus VU3P-2 FPGA..

16 lane PCIe Gen3 or 8 lane PCIe Gen4 capable Interface.

Front IO with 2x QSFP28 sockets, each supporting one 100GbE or four 25GbE interfaces. Onboard Ultraport SlimSAS Connector for OpenCAPI Connectivity.

Two 1G x72 DDR4-2400 ECC memory banks each provide 8GiB of on-board DDR4-2400 memory (72 bits wide).

System monitoring of temperature, voltage, and current gives developers accurate feedback of power utilization for their designs.

This card comes with low-profile and full-height front brackets (low-profile bracket fitted as standard) and an optional blower for low air-flow systems.
