Pico Computing FPGA-based M-503 M-Series Modules

Pico Computing introduced the FPGA-based M-503 M-Series Module. The M-503 board is ideal for the demands for memory and I/O bandwidth for HPC applications in the bioinformatics, image processing and signal processing domains. Used in conjunction with the EX-500 PCIe backplane, Pico is able to “cluster” three M-503s per PCIe slot or in their SC5 SuperCluster, up to 18 M-503s in a 5U Chassis. The first Pico M-503 based SC5 SuperCluster will ship this month.
