Powered by Open Visual Inference & Neural Network Optimization (OpenVINO™) toolkit
As QNAP NAS evolves to support a wider range of applications (including surveillance, virtualization, and AI) you not only need more storage space on your NAS, but also require the NAS to have greater power to optimize targeted workloads. The Mustang-F100 is a PCIe-based accelerator card using the programmable Intel® Arria® 10 FPGA that provides the performance and versatility of FPGA acceleration. It can be installed in a PC or compatible QNAP NAS to boost performance as a perfect choice for AI deep learning inference workloads. >> Difference between Mustang-F100 and Mustang-V100.

PCIe FPGA Highest Performance Accelerator Card with Arria 10 1150GX support DDR4 2400Hz 8GB, PCIe Gen3 x8 interface
OpenVINO™ toolkit is based on convolutional neural networks (CNN), the toolkit extends workloads across Intel® hardware and maximizes performance.
It can optimize pre-trained deep learning model such as Caffe, MXNET, Tensorflow into IR binary file then execute the inference engine across Intel®-hardware heterogeneously such as CPU, GPU, Intel® Movidius™ Neural Compute Stick, and FPGA.
Get deep learning acceleration on Intel-based Server/PC
You can insert the Mustang-F100 into a PC/workstation running Linux® (Ubuntu®) to acquire computational acceleration for optimal application performance such as deep learning inference, video streaming, and data center. As an ideal acceleration solution for real-time AI inference, the Mustang-F100 can also work with Intel® OpenVINO™ toolkit to optimize inference workloads for image classification and computer vision.

QNAP NAS as an Inference Server
OpenVINO™ toolkit extends workloads across Intel® hardware (including accelerators) and maximizes performance. When used with QNAP’s OpenVINO™ Workflow Consolidation Tool, the Intel®-based QNAP NAS presents an ideal Inference Server that assists organizations in quickly building an inference system. Providing a model optimizer and inference engine, the OpenVINO™ toolkit is easy to use and flexible for high-performance, low-latency computer vision that improves deep learning inference. AI developers can deploy trained models on a QNAP NAS for inference, and install the Mustang-F100 to achieve optimal performance for running inference.
1. QTS 4.4.0 (or later) and OWCT v1.1.0 are required for the QNAP NAS.
2. To use FPGA card computing on the QNAP NAS, the VM pass-through function will be disabled. To avoid potential data loss, make sure that all ongoing NAS tasks are finished before restarting.

Check Compatible NAS Models
1. Install the Mustang-F100 into the PCIe Gen3 x8 slot of the NAS. Check Compatibility List for more supported models.
2. Installing “Mustang Card User Driver” in the QTS App Center is required.
Up to 8 cards can be supported with operating systems other than QTS; QNAP TS-2888X NAS supports up to 4 cards. Please assign a card ID number (from 0 to 7) to the Mustang-F100 by using rotary switch manually. The card ID number assigned here will be shown on the LED display of the card after power-up.
