Xilinx and the Adaptive, Composable Datacentre

Justin Warren had the opportunity to join us as a delegate at April’s Tech Field Day and see Xilinx’s presentation. In this post by Justin, he notes that “Xilinx makes programmable hardware, most famously Field Programmable Gate Arrays (FPGAs), that combine the speed of hardware with the flexibility of software.” He also mentions that Xilinx views FPGAs as now being at a similar level to other kinds of compute, such as CPUs, GPUs, and TPUs.

Improving the Data Center Through Composability With Xilinx FPGAs

The battle between ASIC and FPGA has long divided the compute hardware manufacturer industry, and Xilinx believes the FPGAs they showcased at April’s Tech Field Day will set the story straight. Xilinx FPGAs alleviate loads from the CPU, taking on high-powered tasks and promoting a more composable data center. See how they work in this article, or by watching Xilinx’s Tech Field Day presentations.
