BittWare introduced new card- and server-level solutions featuring Intel Agilex FPGAs. The new BittWare IA-860m helps customers ease the workloads of memory-bound applications by using up to 32 GB of HBM2e onboard memory and 16 lanes of PCIe 5.0 (with CXL upgrade option).
BittWare PCIe 5.0/CXL FPGA accelerators feature Intel Agilex M-Series and I-Series to improve memory and interconnect while reducing risk
BittWare also added new products based on Intel Agilex I-Series FPGAs with the introduction of IA-440i and IA-640i accelerators that support high-performance interfaces, including 400G Ethernet and PCIe 5.0 (CXL option). These latest models complement BittWare’s existing line of Intel Agilex F-Series products to form one of the broadest portfolios of Intel Agilex FPGA-based offerings on the market. This announcement reinforces BittWare’s commitment to address the ever-increasing demands of high-performance computing, storage, networking and sensor processing applications.
BittWare has been selected to participate in Intel’s Agilex M-Series Early Access Program (EAP) to accelerate the delivery of FPGA-based solutions incorporating Intel’s latest technology advances. To this end, BittWare’s world-class engineering team will take advantage of the onboard HBM2e (high-bandwidth memory) DRAM stacks; SRAM on a chip; and support for next-generation external synchronous DRAM (SDRAM) memory, including DDR5.
BittWare and Intel are developing solutions to accelerate processing of a variety of workloads ranging from machine learning inference, database acceleration and non-volatile memory express (NVMe) compute storage to network test and measurement, 5G cellular testing and sensor processing. As a result, both organizations are poised to enable customers to keep up with the ever-increasing demands for high-speed networking, computing and storage acceleration for the most demanding applications and computing workloads.
Early access units of the BittWare IA-440i and IA-640i accelerators are available in the fourth quarter of 2022 with production units targeted for delivery in the first quarter of 2023. Early access units of the IA-860m accelerators are planned for the second quarter of 2023, and production units are expected by the second quarter of 2024. All three products will be available through distribution.
