RIVYERA V7-2000T

The largest Xilinx FPGAs

 

Using up to four Virtex-7 2000T FPGAs in its standard configuration, RIVYERA V7-2000T is the newest member of the RIVYERA family. With the largest FPGAs of the Virtex 7 series, this model sets new standards for top-of-the-line reconfigurable computing. Currently, commercial engineering samples of these FPGAs are available and a RIVYERA high performance computer with such models can be ordered immediately. Availability of regular FPGAs is expected for mid of 2012 and the first models can be pre-ordered now.

Key features

xilinx virtex-7 2000T RIVYERA

  • 1 to 4 Xilinx Virtex-7 2000T FPGAs per machine
  • scalability up to 40 FPGAs per rack
  • 2 million logic gates per FPGA
  • up to 20 GB DDR3 RAM and 128 GB SDHC per FPGA
  • individual addressing of FPGAs as well as broadcasting

 

 

Using Virtex-7 2000T FPGAs, this computer is equipped with the largest and most powerful FPGAs of the market leader Xilinx. With these, one RIVYERA, even if only carrying up to four of these large FPGAs, provides all the performance needed for extreme but power-efficient speed-ups of your applications or even new types of analysis and competitive advantage. Directly attached 20 GByte of DDR3 memory, expansion ports for additional 128 GByte of SDHC card based memory per FPGA and two 2 Terabyte SAS hard disks offer lots of memory even for memory and storage intensive applications. If shared memory is a requirement, a shared memory card with up to 128 GByte RAM can be added.

Each RIVYERA has an integrated standard off–the–shelf server class PC internally connected through a 16-lane PCI-Express v2 based controller cards A set-up as a FPGA cluster with several RIVYERA can be achieved with virtually no performance loss by using SciEngines UPLINK technology. Up to 10 RIVYERA (40 FPGAs) can be fit into a standard rack and seamlessly connected.

 

Memory, Bandwidth and API

The upcoming Virtex-7 2000T has a number of configuration options and, in addition to the FPGAs block RAM, provides up to 20 GB DDR3 RAM and optionally up to 128 GB SDHC memory per FPGA. Additionally, the option to use shared memory has been improved with this newest RIVYERA generation.

Last, not least, full as well als partial memory copy from the integrated host-PC to the shared memory card is supported via the API, in addition to all the API's usual and well-liked features like broadcasting, individual addressing of FPGAs and (partial) reconfiguration during run-time.

Quality and Reliability

Our goal is to provide our customers the maximum of quality and reliabilty they could expect for their money. Using industry and military proven components and technics SciEngines products and especially RIVYERA offers one of the most reliable high performance reconfigurable platforms worldwide. All our products are testet in an 48h stress-test to ensure minimum failures. Continuously thermal monitoring and redundant supplies allow our architecture to ensure operation even in tough environmental conditions. Some of our systems are running since 2006 24/7 at a German governmental association without any error nor fail or need of any maintenance.
