SC17 will showcase the data-centric approach of OpenCAPI to collectively build advanced server, networking, storage and acceleration technology aimed at delivering more choice, control and flexibility to developers of next-generation, hyperscale and cloud data centers. Alpha Data offers OpenCAPI enabled FPGA accelerator boards, featuring Xilinx Ultrascale+™ FPGAs. OpenCAPI on POWER9 systems provides a high-performance solution for the implementation on FPGAs of client-specific, computation-heavy algorithms being driven by emerging cognitive workloads. Alpha Data’s Xilinx® FPGA based boards provide the highest performance per watt, lowest latency and simple programming methods for heterogeneous processing systems using POWER architecture.


Alpha Data’s power-efficient accelerators leverage Xilinx’s All Programmable FPGAs to accelerate processing, increase data throughput, and deliver power optimized solutions for computing clusters. Direct attach connectivity to OpenCAPI enabled motherboards provides multi-lane 25G transceiver bandwidth dedicated to coherent acceleration. Designed to be server-friendly for large scale data center deployment, Alpha Data’s range of FPGA accelerator boards are available in a low-profile PCIe format with passive cooling. Alpha Data’s high-reliability hardware platforms are ideal for development as well as full-scale production deployment.

Visit Alpha Data at booth #1838 for a demo “scalable ray-cast rendering of a Voxel based volumetric dataset" using FPGA accelerators on our ADC-PCIE-9V3 and ADM-PCIE-KU3 boards. Visitors to Alpha Data’s booth will also be able to view a Barreleye G2 POWER9 Server integrated with the ADM-PCIE-9V3 OpenCAPI accelerator. In addition, Alpha Data's 9V3 PCIe accelerator cards will be displayed at the OpenCAPI Consortium booth #1587 & #1589 on multiple systems. Visit the ADM-PCIE-9V3 product page here.
