The ADM-PCIE-9H3 is a high-performance FPGA processing card intended for data center applications using Virtex UltraScale+ High Bandwidth Memory FPGAs from AMD.

The ADM-PCIE-9H3 utilises the AMD Virtex Ultrascale Plus FPGA family that includes on substrate High Bandwidth Memory (HBM Gen2). This provides exceptional memory Read/Write performance while reducing the overall power consumption of the board by negating the need for external SDRAM devices. There are also a number of high speed interface options available including 100G Ethernet MACs and OpenCAPI connectivity, to make the most of these interfaces the ADM-PCIE-9H3 is fitted with a QSFP-DD Cage (8x28Gbps lanes) and one OpenCAPI interface for ultra low latency communications.

Board Management

The ADM-PCIE-9H3 houses a system monitoring chip which is able to provide real-time temperature, voltage and current readings of the system, as well as reconfigure programmable clocks and much more. The system monitor is implemented using an Atmel AVR microcontroller, and can be accessed directly through the USB interface via the front panel, the UART connection to the target FPGA or through the SMBus interface on the card's PCI Express edge connector. IPMI can also be used to communicate with the system monitor, allowing for remote communication and management with the ADM-PCIE-9H3.
