The Xilinx® Alveo™ U50 Data Center accelerator card is designed to accelerate memory-bound, compute-intensive applications in financial computing, machine learning, computational storage, and data search and analytics. It is a single slot, low profile, passively-cooled card, consuming up to 75 W. It supports PCIe Gen3 x 16 or dual Gen4 x 8. It is equipped with 8 GB of high-bandwidth memory (HBM2), and Ethernet networking capability. Alveo™ U50 is supported by Xilinx® SDAccel™ software and deployment shell, simplifying the design process allowing high-level languages (C, C++, and OpenCL™).
