The new PALTEK DS-VU 3 P-PCIE Data Brick places a Xilinx Virtex UltraScale+ VU3P FPGA along with 8Gbytes of DDR4-2400 SDRAM, two VITA57.1 FMC connectors, and four Samtec FireFly Micro Flyover ports on one high-bandwidth, PCIe Gen3 with a x16 host connector. The card aims to provide FPGA-based hardware acceleration for applications including 2K/4K video processing, machine learning, big data analysis, financial analysis, and high-performance computing.

The Samtec Micro Flyover ports accept both ECUE copper twinax and ECUO optical cables. The ECUE twinax cables are for short-reach applications and have a throughput of 28Gbps per channel. The ECUO optical cables operate at a maximum data rate of 14Gbps per channel and are available with as many as 12 simplex or duplex channels (with 28Gbps optical channels in development at Samtec).
For broadcast video applications, PALTEK also offers companion 12G-SDI Rx and 12G-SDI-Tx cards that can break out eight 12G-SDI video channels from one FireFly connection.
