Ampere Altra Dev Kit (AADK)

ADLINK’s Ampere Altra Dev Kit is a development kit that consists of a COM-HPC Server carrier and COM-HPC Server type module featuring Ampere® Altra® 32/64/96/128-core SoC (Arm Neoverse N1-based architecture) for instantaneous edge solutions prototyping right out of the box.

With 32/64/96/128 Arm v8.2 64-bit cores for up to 1.7/2.2/2.6 GHz and providing support for up to 768GB DDR4 memory, it offers superior performance and power per watt with exceptional scalability.

The COM-HPC Server base supports up to 3 x16, 2 x4 PCIe slots, 2x M.2 storage connectors, VGA, 1x GbE LAN, 4x USB 3.0/2.0(rear), GPIOs, and other management buses.

1x heatsink with fan, 2x power part heatsinks, and 1x VGA-to-HDMI adapter are also included.

Modules are specifically designed for typical industrial embedded applications that require long life, high MTBF, and strict revision control.

Ampere® Altra®


The Ampere® Altra® processor is the world’s first 128-core (Armv8.2) system on a chip (SoC) solution using the Arm® Neoverse N1 architecture. Built for the cloud-to-edge computing of today and tomorrow, every one of its 128 CPU cores composes a single-thread design with a 64KB L1-cache, 64KB L1 D-cache, and a vast 1MB L2 cache. Along with support for mass PCIe Gen4 lanes, Ampere® Altra® brings premium, predictable performance with hyper scalability and efficiency. Also aiming toward a sustainable carbon footprint, the processor offers monumentally lower power consumption than its x86 counterpart.

Ampere® Altra® is the ideal go-to solution for powering various web, database, and AI applications. These include online forms, shopping carts, spreadsheets, video/photo editing, email programs, Oracle databases, Apache Cassandra, MongoDB, Oracle Autonomous DB, banking systems, medical records, Big Data Processing, computer vision, natural language processing, recommendation engines, and more.

Arm® Neoverse N1

Arm® Neoverse N1, with which Ampere® Altra® is built, is a high-performance Arm CPU microarchitecture that serves as the successor and high-leap to the Cosmos platform specifically for the server market. It revolutionizes daily computing for cloud-to-edge applications by offering exceptional performance and scalability, topped with unmatched power and space efficiency.
