Broader Paths Etched into FPGA Datacenter Roadmap

February 29, 2016 Nicole Hemsoth Well before the Intel acquisition of Altera and the news about Microsoft’s use of the Catapult servers, which feature FPGAs to power their Bing search engine and other key applications, it has been clear that the FPGA future is just starting to unfold. With all the pieces in position in terms of the vendor ecosystem, understanding where their value might be for actual applications beyond where one might have expected to find them ten years ago is still something of a challenge. But that picture is getting clearer. In his 25-year career working with FPGAs, UCLA’s Dr. Jason Cong has watched the devices move from purpose-driven implementations, to devices for prototyping and now, in more recent years as computing devices and accelerators. Cong has developed…
