Performance and bandwidth together. Our AC-520 module uses an Intel Arria 10 FPGA, together with an HMC and HMC controller, to accelerate the most demanding applications with the most efficient, cost-effective performance/watt profile available.


The AC-520 advances our unique modular architecture with our high-bandwidth Hybrid Memory Cube (HMC) and an Intel® Arria® 10 FPGA.

Up to three AC-520 modules can be snapped onto a Micron full-length PCIe backplane (up to eight backplanes in a 4U chassis), filling a single PCIe slot with a groundbreaking level of parallel processing density for compute-intensive and memory-bound applications.

To simplify application development, the AC-520 module includes the HMC and HMC controller, along with support for OpenCL™ and PicoFramework. By utilizing these technologies, you can accelerate the most demanding applications with the most efficient and cost-effective performance/watt profile available.
