HTG-S500 : Altera Stratix V Dual 40Gig Half-Size PCI Express Networking Card
(Financial Data Processing Platform)

Powered by Altera Stratix V FPGA, the HTG-S500  half-size PCI Express platform is ideal for applications requiring high bandwidth and low latency data processing between host servers and network interfaces used in data centers (i.e financial data processing).

Supported by 40Gig Ethernet, PCI Express Gen3, DDR3, and QDR-II reference designs along with PCI Express Linux/Windows drivers, the HTG-S500 minimizes engineering efforts for complex design integration and verification.

Availability of the HTG-S500 platform with different density of Stratix V FPGAs  with the same device footprint allows easy design upgrade for different end applications.
