FPGAs and Data Centers: It Takes a Stack

CATEGORIES : All, Data Center, Design Challenges/AUTHOR : Ron Wilson

Design experience across a wide range of applications—from signal processing to network packet processing to cryptography to deep learning inference—has shown that, properly used, FPGAs can provide very substantial performance and power  improvements in algorithm execution. Generally, these improvements come from implementing computational kernels—the inner loops of the algorithm—in the FPGA hardware, offloading these kernels […]
