NiteFury is the PicoEVB‘s (slightly) bigger, beefier cousin. It’s an M.2 FPGA dev board that includes on-board DDR3 RAM which lets you work with PCI Express at incredible rates from inside your laptop or desktop. You could also use NiteFury as an FPGA co-processor. Let the Xilinx Artix-7 handle your encryption or act as a hardware-level encoder/decoder for speedy workflows. It’s your FPGA, design what you like.
RHS Research has also teamed up with another company to provide NiteFury at an amazing campaign price.
Like PicoEVB but…
Additionally, the motherboard’s SMBus signals are pinned to the FPGA.
NiteFury is open source hardware: https://github.com/RHSResearchLLC/NiteFury

The hardware design is pretty much complete and ready for manufacturing. The last challenge remaining is cooling! A massive FPGA requires some help on this front, so RHS Research is developing a custom, low-profile cooler (6 mm).
