V5021 Dual Channel 10 Gigabit Ethernet FPGA Server Card

*This card is no longer recommended for new designs. Please see the V5051 Quad-Port PCI Express FPGA Card for comparable functionality.

This PCI Express server card features dual 10 Gigabit Ethernet SFP+ optical ports and is available in a range of Xilinx Virtex-5 FPGA options providing scalable processing performance. Its memory architecture is based on multiple independent high-speed SDRAM and SRAM memory interfaces that enable advanced 10 Gigabit Ethernet network traffic processing. The V5021 comes standard with expressXG Framework Lite, an advanced FPGA development infrastructure that gives programmers the advantage to develop their own network security and monitoring applications rapidly and efficiently.


  • Standard half-length, full-height PCI Express server card
  • Available in a range of user-programmable Xilinx Virtex-5 FPGA options
  • High performance SDRAM and SRAM memory architecture
  • Two 10 Gigabit Ethernet SFP+ optical ports
