Welcome to DE4 NetFPGA

DE4 NetFPGA is an open source port of the NetFPGA platform on Altera DE4 board. DE4 NetFPGA provides network researchers with a powerful open platform to build complex network applications. It features:

  • Stratix IV FPGA with 5x more logic and memory resources than the Virtex II in NetFPGA 1G.
  • PCI Express Interface for faster host to FPGA data transfers.
  • Up to 8G external DDR memory

DE4 NetFPGA is being developed at the Reconfigurable Computing Group at University of Massachusetts Amherst. This project is funded by Altera.
