The ADM-PCIE-9H7 has a last time order date of the 31st October 2024. See PDN-202302-1.0


The ADM-PCIE-9H7 is a high-performance FPGA processing card intended for data center applications using Virtex UltraScale+ High Bandwidth Memory FPGAs from AMD.

The ADM-PCIE-9H7 utilizes 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 large number of high speed interface options available including 100G Ethernet MACs, 150G Interlaken cores and multiple PCI Express cores. To make the most of these interfaces the ADM-PCIE-9H7 is fitted with 4 QSFP28 Cages, up to 8 Firefly interfaces (each 4x 28Gbps) and two OpenCAPI interfaces for ultra low latency communications.

Board Management

The ADM-PCIE-9H7 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 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. When enabled**, IPMI can also be used to communicate with the system monitor, allowing for remote communication and management with the ADM-PCIE-9H7.

** 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-9H7.
