The ADA-R9100 is a 1U 19 Rack Mount appliance based around the AMD Ultrascale+ VU2P Ultra Low Latency FPGA. This appliance is designed to provide the lowest latency access to the highest number of ultra-low latency GTF transceivers that are the unique feature of the VU2P device.

32 Extremely low latency channels are provided via SFP+ connections on the front panel, with trace delays of less than 1ns. The other 40 low latency channels, have trace delays of less than 3ns and connect to 10 QSFP28 connections on the front panel.

Multiple clock jitter attenuators are available on appliance FPGA board to allow source synchronous clocking of GTF receivers. The FPGA board also features 16GB DDR4 SODIMM and 576Mb of QDRII+ SRAM.

The appliance is data center deployment ready, and can be remotely managed using the embedded ASRockRack ROME4ID-2T motherboard. This platform features an ATSPEED BMC that allows remote management and power cycling of the system. The CPU sub-system features an AMD EPYC7002 series processor, 32GB DDR4 and 64GB NVMe pre-installed with Ubuntu Linux OS. This system is powerful enough to run the AMD Vivado toolset for advanced remote debug and development. Additional comprehensive system monitoring of the complete appliance is available in standby and fully powered up via Ethernet, IPMI and USB functionality. The CPU sub-system can connect to the FPGA via PCIe Gen3x8.

The appliance features a dual redundant power supply, for server class reliability
