Xilinx T1 Telco Accelerator Card
Industry’s 1st Telco Convergence NIC with O-RAN Fronthaul Offload and L1 Offload.
The Xilinx T1 Telco Accelerator Card is a multi-function small form factor PCIe card that performs both O-RAN fronthaul and 5G NR layer-1 acceleration in a single slot PCIe card. Engineered for Telco Grade Reliability (NEBs), the T1 Card solution delivers 10x performance increase over software only implementation (>20x solution cost reduction). T1 Card is built around Xilinx Zynq Ultrascale + MPSoC & RFSoc. The T1 Card has two 25G SFP28 and x16 PCIe interfaces bifurcated into two x8 interfaces. This Board is dual slot FHHL (full-height, half-length) form factor. 100G CMAC interface is provided between ZU21DR and ZU19EG for data transfer operations.
- Xilinx ZU21DR RFSoC for 5G baseband processing offload
- Xilinx MPSOC ZU19EG for 5G O-RAN fronthaul termination
- x64 bit 4GB DDR4 Memory interfaced to PL
- x32 bit 2GB DDR4 Memory interfaced to PS
- Two SFP28 cages for 25G
- x16 PCIe interface bifurcated to two x8 interfaces to the host device through PCIe edge finger connector
- x16 standard NIC card form factor ( 112mm x 168mm )
- JTAG Connectors for Debugging

VVDN's L1 Offload design is available with BBDev APIs, which can be easily interfaced with baseband (L1) software stack
- DPDK baseband device library framework to provide workloads for offload.
- Poll mode driver based on Xilinx QDMA to submit data to HW accelerator.
- One core is available for LDPC encode operation and three for decode operation.
- BBDev API for LDPC, rate matching hardware acceleration.
- User can submit the CB payload to the BBDEV driver after the CRC attachment.
- The BBDEV driver will fill the corresponding descriptor ring, and hardware accelerator will submit the encode/decoded data in the dequeue ring after the respective operation.
