Podcast: Radio Free HPC Looks at FPGAs

In this podcast, the Radio Free HPC team discusses the recent buzz surrounding FGPAs. After being sidelined by accelerators, they’re increasingly being used in appliances. Big vendors are talking about FPGAs not only for appliances but for general-purpose systems as performance assists. Are we headed back to the future? The guys discuss the ins and […]

Video: A Low-Latency Library in FPGA Hardware for High-Frequency Trading

In this video, John Lockwood from Algo-Logic presents: A Low-Latency Library in FPGA Hardware for High-Frequency Trading (HFT). Recorded at the Hot Interconnects 2012 conference in Santa Clara. Current High-Frequency Trading (HFT) platforms are typically implemented in software on computers with high-performance network adapters. The high and unpredictable latency of these systems has led the […]

ParaSplit: A Scalable Architecture on FPGA for Terabit Packet Classification

In this video, Jeffrey Fong presents: ParaSplit: A Scalable Architecture on FPGA for Terabit Packet Classification. Packet classification is a fundamental enabling function for various applications in switches, routers and firewalls. Due to their performance and scalability limitations, current packet classification solutions are insufficient in addressing the challenges from the growing network bandwidth and the […]
