This month at SC17 in Denver, Nallatech was showing its new 250S+ high-performance SSD-accelerator PCIe card, which uses a Xilinx Kintex UltraScale+ KU15P FPGA to implement an NVMe SSD controller/accelerator and the board’s PCIe Gen4 x8 interface. You can plug SSD cards or NVMe cables into the card’s four M.2 NVME slots so you can control as many as four on- or off-board drives with one card. The card comes in 3.84Tbyte and 6.4Tbyte versions with on-board M.2 NVMe SSDs and can control a drive array as large as 25.6Tbytes using NVMe cables.

Here are the card’s specs:
And here’s a block diagram of the Nallatech 250S+ NVMe accelerator card:
As you can see, the Kintex UltraScale+ FPGA implements the entire logic design on the card, driving the PCIe connector, managing the four attached NVMe SSDs, directly controlling and operating the card’s on-board DDR4-2400 SDRAM cache, and even implementing the card’s JTAG interface.
