Programmable Network Adapters - Overview

Mellanox programmable network adapters integrate Mellanox's best-in-class network controllers with an advanced FPGA on a single board.

The FPGA provides maximum flexibility to boost application performance by migrating data processing logic the FPGA, while taking advantage of the Mellanox network controller's hardware-based application accelerations, unmatched scalability, and efficiency.

The Mellanox Programmable Network Adapters product line consists of two major types:

  • Open Platforms - enable customers to program and customize the network adapter to their needs.
  • Security Adapters - provide offloading of compute-intensive encryption and authentication algorithms, which are used by security protocols.
