Mellanox BlueField SmartNIC 25Gb/s Dual Port Ethernet Network Adapter – PCI Express 4.0 x8 – 2 Port(s) – Optical Fiber – 25GBase-X – Plug-in Card NOT GA ENGINEERING SAMPLE NCNRSmart programmable network adapter card combines Arm® processing power with advanced network offloads to accelerate a multitude of security, networking and storage applications, delivering world-leading performance, flexibility and efficiency

BlueField SmartNIC is a two-port 25Gb/s network adapter featuring the BlueField system-on-chip (SoC), which integrates the ConnectX®-5 network controller with an Arm multicore processor array, to deliver an innovative and high-performance programmable networking engine. Providing unmatched scalability and efficiency, the BlueField SmartNIC is the ideal adapter to accelerate the most demanding workloads in data center, cloud, service provider and storage environments.


The BlueField SmartNIC is an 8-lane PCIe Gen3.0/4.0, half-height, half-length (HHHL) card comprising two 25Gb/s Ethernet SFP28 ports and a BlueField SoC with a DDR4 DRAM memory subsystem. This powerful network adapter offers the flexibility to fully, or partially, implement and offload the data and control planes to accelerate a range of applications.

The BlueField adapter enables a more efficient use of compute resources, now dedicated to run applications rather than focus on networking or security processing, therefore supporting the growing demand for bandwidth per host. This software-defined adapter ensures ultimate flexibility by adapting to future protocols and features through simple software update.


BlueField is a Mellanox family of advanced SoC solutions that integrates a coherent mesh of 64-bit Armv8 A72 cores, a ConnectX network adapter front-end and a PCI Express switch into a single chip.

The powerful SoC architecture includes an Armv8 multicore processor array and enables customers to develop sophisticated applications and highly differentiated feature sets. BlueField leverages the rich Arm software ecosystem and introduces the ability to offload the x86 software stack.

At the heart of BlueField is the ConnectX-5 network offload controller with RDMA and RDMA over Converged Ethernet (RoCE) technology, delivering cutting-edge performance for networking and storage applications such as NVMe over Fabrics. Advanced features include an embedded virtual switch with programmable access lists (ACLs), transport offloads and stateless encaps/ decaps of NVGRE, VXLAN, and MPLS overlay protocols.


BlueField SmartNIC addresses the concerns of modern data centers by combining hardware encryption accelerators with embedded software and fully integrated advanced network capabilities, making it an ideal platform for developing proprietary security applications.

It enables a distributed security architecture by isolating and protecting each individual workload and providing flexible control and visibility at the server and workload level, controlling risk at the server access layer. BlueField builds security into the DNA of the data center and enables prevention, detection and response to potential threats inreal time.

BlueField SmartNIC is capable of delivering powerful functionality, including encryption of data-in-motion, bare metal provisioning, stateful L4 firewall and more.


BlueField SmartNIC offers a wide range of dedicated offloads to maximize virtualization scalability and efficiency. Data center administrators can benefit from better server utilization, allowing more virtual machines and more tenants on the same hardware, while reducing the TCO, power, and cable complexity.

  • Intelligent programmable network adapter: Combines best-in-class hardware network offloads with Arm processing power, Accelerates wide range of security, networking, storage and other workloads, Reduces TCO by offloading main CPU to focus on compute and applications rather than security or networking functions, 2 ports of 25GbE, 8x lanes of PCIe 3.0 and 4.0, Standard embedded Linux software stack
  • Accelerates a range of workloads
  • Open vSwitch (OVS) including custom implementation and extensions
  • Implementation of various types of security functions, such as: Stateful L4-based firewall, Encryption of data in motion
  • Storage accelerations, leveraging hardware offloads for NVMe-oF
