Large Scale HPC
Conventional servers do not offer enough computing power despite their high energy consumption. That is why FPGA acceleration is the solution to current computationally intensive challenges.
Aldec’s scalable FPGA accelerators have been developed and optimized for large-scale HPC applications. Today’s generation of FPGA accelerator cards have low-power Xilinx® Ultrascale ™ FPGAs that offer outstanding computing performance with an energy efficiency that cannot be achieved with GPU-based accelerators.
Recently, there has been an increasing need for embedded systems, many of which incorporate compelling microprocessor designs that exceed the capabilities of desktop computers available ten years ago. Smartphones are a common example, but there are hundreds of others. Computer vision, automotive systems, UAV (drones), security cameras and network security are just a few categories in which embedded electronics are present.
Embedded HPC is the right solution for the growing demand for computing capacity in embedded applications. These applications require the CPU and FPGA to be on the same board and ideally on the same chip. For this reason, Aldec’s TySOM boards are based on the Xilinx Zynq family of MPSoC and chipsets that integrate the ARM Programmable System and FPGA.
