Pico Computing’s modules are the foundational building blocks that comprise a truly scalable HPC system based on the PCI Express bus standard. The business card-sized M-505 K325T is a powerful computing element composed of FPGA logic (with loading system), a local memory sub-system, and a fully-switched PCIe x8 communication structure. The module is designed for maximum memory and logic bandwidth.

Up to six M-505-K325T modules can be snapped onto a Pico Computing EX-500 backplane, filling a single PCIe slot with a groundbreaking level of parallel processing density and scalability for compute-intensive applications.

The M-505-K325T ships standard with the Xilinx Kintex-7 K325T FPGA, or optionally with the Xilinx K410T FPGA. The module features a x8 PCI Express Gen 2 connection to the host and high-performance/high-density SODIMM with independent memory controller, local to the FPGA.


Choose the M-505-K325T to dramatically accelerate radio astronomy, design simulations/emulations, SDR applications, beam forming, digital signal processing, and other algorithms.
