Product ManualManual

The MIO-BLADE-Z21 is a single-node FPGA accelerated compute blade for the evEDGE™ virtualized broadcast infrastructure platform. When used in conjunction with the SCORPION platform, the MIO-BLADE offers high-density FPGA processing nodes that are reconfigurable to provide customized audio, video and ancillary data processing pipelines. MIO-BLADE provides the agility and flexibility of a virtualized environment while also ensuring low latency, low power, deterministic and reliable FPGA processing pipelines.

MIO-BLADE contains a single compute node that provides unmatched processing capacity. One example of a deployable pipeline on a single node is a 7814UDX-2 dual path 3G/HD/SD up/down/cross converter with frame synchronization, color correction and noise reduction, along with a rich feature set of audio processing and ancillary data processing. Leveraging SCORPION with MIO-BLADE provides the equivalent of 8x 7814UDX-2 modules, or 16 paths of UDX in a single SCORPION-X18 chassis (1RU). Aside from UDX, the MIO-BLADE supports a growing list of microservices in the evEDGE™ catalogue, with future capability for HDR conversion, VPROC, IP delays and more.
