AMD Pensando DSC2-25G Hardware Overview
The AMD Pensando DSC2-25G is the company’s dual 25GbE DPU with the advantage that it is a low-profile card.
The card still uses a 7nm Elba processor, but only has a PCIe Gen4 x8 interface since it is a lower-bandwidth card than the dual 100GbE version.
Here is the Elba processor. One can also see that there are half as many DRAM packages on this DPU.
The rest of the memory is on the back of the card with the NAND storage and the Artix 7 FPGA.
Here is a view of the management port that we are not using as well as the two 25GbE interfaces.
On the other end, we can see our management connector again.
Now that we have seen the cards, it is time to get to using them.
