When Intel Buys Altera: Will FPGAs Take Over the Data Center?


Comments by Kevin Morris, Kevin Cameron, Reiner Hartenstein, Steve Casselman...

LinkedIn Discussion

Steve Casselman: FPGAs will completely dominate the data center. In the big data area you don’t really need cache you need FIFOs and streams. There is no “data reuse” when you are indexing an unstructured data set.

Can FPGAs win market share as processors?

Atmel teams up with industry leaders to form IoT group

With 212 billion connected devices expected to arrive within the next few years, Atmel is joining forces with tech leaders Broadcom, Dell, Intel, Samsung and Wind River to establish a new industry group focused on improving interoperability and streamlining connectivity. At this point, there are multiple proposals and forums driving varying approaches, yet no single solution addresses the majority of key requirements. The newly-unveiled Open Interconnect Consortium (OIC) looks to define a common communications framework based on industry standard technologies to wirelessly connect and intelligently manage the flow of information among personal computing and emerging Internet of Things (IoT) devices, regardless of form factor, operating system or service provider.

When Intel Buys Altera, Will FPGAs Take Over the Data Center?

Intel’s Diane Bryant announced that Intel is “integrating [Intel’s] industry-leading Xeon processor with a coherent FPGA in a single package, socket compatible to [the] standard Xeon E5 processor offerings.” ... the FPGA will provide Intel customers “a programmable, high performance coherent acceleration capability to turbo-charge their algorithms” and that industry benchmarks indicate that FPGA-based accelerators can deliver >10x performance gains, with an Intel-claimed 2x additional performance, thanks to a low-latency coherent interface between the FPGA and the processor.

Microsoft announced a system it calls “Catapult”. Microsoft’s Catapult achieved a reported 95% increase in Bing search engine performance, with only a 10% increase in power consumption.

Mentor Graphics Expands Automotive Portfolio, Acquires XS Embedded to Reduce Time to Start of Production (SOP)

Mentor Graphics announced the acquisition of XS Embedded GmbH (XSe), a technology leader in the creation of automotive system architectures and hardware reference platforms.

Mentor is now well positioned to address the cross-functional collaboration needs required to address the trends towards integration of Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS), Driver Information and Infotainment domains.

Modern automotive systems push the technology envelope with feature-rich embedded systems that combine high-quality graphics, domain-specific audio, multi-media, mobile device integration and connectivity. The design challenges are tremendous with millions of lines of code per vehicle, cross-domain function consolidation, mixed safety criticality, security, and the use of heterogeneous multi-core SOCs.
