NSA.121 is a Xilinx FPGA-based PCIe card, designed to improve processing speed, provides high-performance computing capabilities. Comparing with traditional CPU or GPU solutions, NSA.121 Accelerator card offers a new heterogeneous solution. In certain applications, the performance could be enhanced up to 10 times and more.

?  Hardware Loose Coupling: 

NSA.121 has standard PCIe card profile and low power consumption.  It can be installed in most servers, requiring no external power supply and no special cooling consideration. Large-scale deployment is easy for additional rack space is not needed.

?  Transparent to Software: 

The library encapsulates both HW and SW version of accelerated functions, enabling an application to work with or without available accelerator.  It’s a system software virtualization of accelerator’s functions.  In Power system, you can also program with CAPI (Coherent Accelerator Processor Interface) for high bandwidth, low latency, cache coherence and easy programming model.

?  High Performance & Low Power: 

NSA.121 use FPGA to execute large-scale parallel computing and optimize algorithm implementation on hardware level.  5x to 100x performance improvement can be obtained compared to software implemention with only 15w~60w power consumption.

?  Third-party IP protection: 

IP distribution is fully controlled with the dedicated security chips on board to guarantee the benefit of IP providers. IP porting to NSA is safe and encrypted.

?  SDAccel Development Environment: 

Xilinx SDAccel? development environment for OpenCL?, C, and C++. SDAccel? makes it easy to migrate existing application to leverage FPGAs, and provides CPU/GPU like development and run-time experience for FPGAs. It is a real Software Defined Accelerator.
