Fiberblaze/Silicom Denmark FBC2CGG3-STD-8X10G

Fiberblaze 2x QSFP28 (8x 10GbE) Capture Card, Full Filter, based on Xilinx Ultrascale XCVU080, 16GB DDR4, PCIe Gen 3 x16, full height, 3/4 length

SKU: FBC2CGG3-STD-8X10G Categories: , Tag:

The Fiberblaze FBC2CGG3-STD-8X10G offers 8 x 10GE network
connectivity and high speed capture to host memory
with zero packet loss and packet processing.
The FBC2CGG3-STD-8X10G card is based on cutting edge Xilinx FPGA
technology, providing packet filtering, advanced
processing, traffic management, load balancing and
host offloading mechanisms.
This high performance hardware platform connects to
10GE using QSFP28 modules, and performs packet
processing, while delivering a sustained throughput to
host memory of up to 224 Gbps.
The card use a single-slot PCIe solution through a 16-
lane PCIe slot. It also features a second PCIe
connector for cable connection to a second PCIe
slot. The second PCIe connector can also serve
as a card-to-card interconnect path to a second
The FBC2CGG3-STD-8X10G is part of the fbCAPTURE family
which provides a powerful and flexible Software API,
as well as standard libpcap integration.
Through the integration of fbCAPTURE API,
applications gain support for all fbCAPTURE cards,
covering Ethernet speeds from 1GE to 10GE.
The fbCAPTURE framework
The fbCAPTURE framework is a combination of FPGA firmware and a software API in C that utilises the full
potential present in a range of FPGA based network interface cards from Fiberblaze. The fbCAPTURE Cards
are designed with a combination of a powerful FPGA and large amounts of high speed onboard memory to
ensure zero packet loss even at line rate performance. The fbCapture API is common for all the capture
cards for 1GE, 10GE line rates. This simplifies system integration greatly, as support for
multiple network rates can be achieved with the same integratio n efforts.
