Intel® Stratix® 10 MX FPGA is the essential multi-function accelerator for high performance computing (HPC), data center, virtual networking functions (NFV), and broadcast applications. These devices combine the programmability and flexibility of Intel® Stratix® 10 FPGAs and SoCs with 3D stacked high-bandwidth memory 2 (HBM2). The Intel® Hyperflex™ FPGA Architecture enables high-performance core fabric that can efficiently utilize the bandwidth from the in-package memory tile. The DRAM memory tile is physically connected to the FPGA using Intel’s Embedded Multi-Die Interconnect Bridge (EMIB) technology.
Intel® Stratix® 10 MX devices offer 10X more bandwidth versus current discrete memory solutions such as DDR4 SDRAM. Traditional DDR4 DIMMs provide ~21 GBps bandwidth while 1 HBM2 tile provides up to 256 GBps. Intel® Stratix® 10 MX devices integrate up to two HBM2 devices in a single package, enabling a maximum memory bandwidth of up to 512 GBps.
Intel® Stratix® 10 MX devices integrate HBM2 memory next to the core fabric. The interconnect between the core fabric and memory is significantly shorter, which reduces the amount of power traditionally spent driving long PCB traces. The traces are unterminated and there is reduced capacitive loading, which results in lower I/O current consumption. The net result is lower system power and optimum performance per watt.
The Intel® Stratix® 10 MX package integrates memory components, reducing the complexity of the PCB design. This implementation enables a smaller form factor and a simple usage model, resulting in a highly flexible, easy to use, scalable solution. One example of this feature is with the embedded SRAM (eSRAM), which supplements already existing block RAM with higher bandwidth 11.25X more aggregate (read and write) bandwidth and 2.6X total lower power relative to discrete QDR IV-10661.The enhanced embedded SRAM is ideal for applications requiring highest levels of random transaction rates (RTR), helping replace or minimize the need for discrete QDR, and zero EMIF I/O consumption.
