  1. The specifications in this data sheet apply to production U280 cards. Any differences in U280 ES1 card specifications and capabilities are documented in the U280 ES1 Known Issues Answer Record 71975.
  2. The 215W PCIe CEM card can take 65W from the standard connector 12V supply and an additional 150W from the AUX connector 12V supply. The 3.3V supply from the standard connector is not used on this card. The CEM card requires that a 150W PCIe AUX power cable be connected to the card.
  3. Passive and active cooling cards are qualified for deployment. The active DEV part number includes a USB cable for development purposes. For volume ordering options on active cards without USB cable included, contact your local AMD sales representative.
  4. The PCIe interface can be configured to support a variety of link widths and speeds. The maximum is Gen3 (8 GT/s) x16, Gen4 (16 GT/s) x8, or CCIX operating at 16 GT/s x8. The PCIe interface can also be configured into dual x8 interfaces and connected to hosts that support PCIe bifurcation.
  5. This block operates in compatibility mode for 16.0 GT/s (Gen4) operation. Refer to UltraScale+ Devices Integrated Block for PCI Express LogiCORE IP Product Guide (PG213) for details on compatibility mode.
