AI & FPGA

FPGA for Artificial Intelligence (AI)

FPGA and AI open up new extensive opportunities in engineering. FPGAs provide adaptable, high-performance solutions that exceed traditional GPUs and CPUs while increasingly more complex AI-related technologies help to accelerate workloads in machine learning applications.

Employing FPGA for AI-based projects, we can tailor your solutions to ever-changing environments. Unlike traditional processors, FPGAs ensure flexibility, continuous parallel computing functionality, and an impressive balance between performance and power consumption.

Advantages of FPGAs in AI

Motherboard icon

Flexibility

Using FPGA for AI applications allows us to build adaptable solutions. Due to its hardware-defined nature, it minimises the wastage of processing time for fetching data.

Parallelism icon

Custom parallelism

FPGAs are designed to perform multiple parallel operations, making them ideal for managing large networks and boosting overall system performance.

Screen icon

Scalability

The programmable architecture allows adding an almost unlimited amount of FPGAs per slot in case the AI algorithm is more significant than a single device can handle.

FPGA power icon

Power

FPGAs offer excellent performance with lower power consumption. They are resilient and can work in harsh conditions for extended durations.

Reduced latency

Processing large data sets in real-time is possible thanks to robust on-chip memory that helps minimise delays.

Clock icon

Minimal access time

High memory bandwidth ensures rapid processing of large data amounts, significantly reducing waiting times.
