Let's talk about embedded FPGAs (eFPGAs)

With the convergence of processing requirements across multiple different industry verticals, the need to support flexibility and scalability in new designs is even more essential. Whilst virtualized/containerized workloads running on CPUs are central to, and simplify many of these new designs, the need for workload acceleration is essential to meet overall power, throughput and latency requirements.

Achronix Semiconductor's presentation reviews how FPGA and embedded FPGA (eFPGA) IP resources can be utilized to provide support for various acceleration offload requirements including protocol translation, security and ML workloads.

Achronix’s unique 2D NoC interconnect allows FPGA fabric resources to be split into logical partitions that appear as a homogeneous block of resources, which can be virtualized into multiple FPGA sub-elements, each supporting its own function. The 2D NoC provides a low latency, transparent conduit between external memory, I/O interfaces and FPGA logic resources. After attending this presentation, you will understand the benefits of FPGA and eFPGA IP architectures and how they can be used to implement virtualized accelerator blocks in your design.
