Hi @Fan 

You can use the P2P functionality to have a kernel from one card access DDR or memory on another card. 

You can use the QSFP ports and connect cards together. 

The P2P functionality comes with the Alveo stack and shells, the QSFP ports must be used in a custom flow at this time. There will be QSFP enabled shells in the future. 

Regards,

M
