ENSEMBLE® 8000 Series FCN8213 FPGA Compute Node AdvancedTCA Xeon-EP and FPGA blade

Product Description

Most powerful single slot Intel server-class processing power and FPGA resources for advanced radar IMINT and other compute-intense applications 

The Ensemble FCN8213 FPGA compute node (FCN) is a next-generation secure AdvancedTCA™ blade with dual 12-core processors and FPGA resources. The blade is equipped with native Advanced Vector Extensions 2 (AVX2) and full Intel Quick Path Interconnect (QPI) with the support of up to 128GB DDR4-2133 SDRAM to deliver a combined 1.38 TFLOPS of general-purpose processing power. The blade supports multiple system integrity solutions and is equipped with an AMC mezzanine site for the broadest system integration versatility available.

The Ensemble FCN8213 has ruggedization and cooling enhancements inherited from its OpenVPX pedigree. Mercury’s secure ATCA Ensemble portfolio leverages best commercial technology from the industrial base to support the U.S. Department of Defense's Better Buying Power requirements for open system architectures, affordability and exportability.
