  • Bring the Combined Power of HPC and AI to your Business Transformation

    FPGA (Field Programmable Gate Array) acceleration cards are not new, as they’ve been commercially available since 1984. Typically, the emphasis around FPGAs has centered on the fact that they’re programmable accelerators, and that they can truly offer workload-specific hardware acceleration solutions without requiring custom silicon. Simplifying FPGAs Traditionally, FPGA programming has often required expertise with…
