FPGA Features (Hard IP)
The ADM-PCIE-9V3 is a half-length, low profile, PCI Express Add-In Card featuring the powerful and efficient Xilinx Virtex UltraScale Plus VU3P-2 FPGA.
16 lane PCIe Gen3 or 8 lane PCIe Gen4 capable Interface.
Front IO with 2x QSFP28 sockets, each supporting one 100GbE or four 25GbE interfaces. Onboard Ultraport SlimSAS Connector for OpenCAPI Connectivity.
Two 1G x72 DDR4-2400 ECC memory banks each provide 8GiB of on-board DDR4-2400 memory (72 bits wide).
System monitoring of temperature, voltage, and current gives developers accurate feedback of power utilization for their designs.
This card comes with low-profile and full-height front brackets (low-profile bracket fitted as standard) and an optional blower for low air-flow systems.

The ADM-PCIE-9V3 houses a system monitoring chip which is able to provide real-time temperature, voltage and current readings of the system, as well as reconfigure programmable clocks and much more. The system monitor can be accessed directly through the USB interface via the front panel, the UART connection to the target FPGA or through the SMBus interface on the card's PCI Express edge connector. When enabled**, IPMI can also be used to communicate with the system monitor, allowing for remote communication and management with the ADM-PCIE-9V3.
** IPMI is disabled by default and should only be enabled when the board is installed in an IPMI compliant system. Please contact the factory for details on enabling IPMI on the ADM-PCIE-9V3.
The USB/JTAG Interface is compatible with all of the Xilinx Vivado® Tools.
