The NetFPGA-SUME board is suitable for high-performance computing and high density networking design. It is powered by Xilinx Virtex-7 690T and is co-developed by Digilent, Xilinx, the University of Cambridge, and Stanford University. The board has been used in academic and industrial researches including networks security, software defined networking, high-performance network systems.
Researchers from University of Cambridge and Stanford University have published a paper“NetFPGA SUME: Toward 100Gbps as Research Commodity” in IEEEExplore. In the paper, the author pointed out that NetFPGA SUME can be used as a true 300Gb/s fully non-blocking unmanaged Ethernet switch. NetFPGA SUME provides an important technology by serving as a platform for novel datacenter interconnect
