SC6 1U


Pico Computing’s SC6 systems are the highest density air-cooled FPGA-accelerated computing machines in the world. The SC6-1U is a complete, standalone rackmount system aimed at high performance computing applications. It is orders of magnitude faster than conventional servers while consuming a faction of their energy.

Using Pico’s revolutionary software framework, seamless system migration is made possible, as users maintain a familiar Linux work environment. All SC6 systems are PCIe Gen 3 and fully ‘plug and play’ with different AC-series modules.


Typical applications include big data, data mining, security and defense, bioinformatics, cryptography, complex simulations/emulations, image and signal processing, transaction verification, and applied financial analytics.
