20 Tbps 2D NoC

The burgeoning use of conversational artificial intelligence (CAI) in consumer and business applications places a heavy computational burden on both front-end and back-end systems that provide the natural language processing (NLP). NLP systems rely on deep learning (a subset of machine learning) to automate speech recognition,… Read More


Benefits of a 2D Network On Chip for FPGAs

Benefits of a 2D Network On Chip for FPGAs
by Tom Simon on 04-12-2022 at 10:00 am

Achronix FPGA 2D NoC

The reason people love FPGAs for networking and communications applications is because they offer state of the art high speed interfaces and impressive parallel processing power. The problem is that typically a lot of the FPGA fabric resources are used simply to move the data on or off and across the chip. Achronix has cleverly … Read More

5G’s Departure from Its Predecessors

In each move from 1G to 4G people became accustomed to seeing the new generation as primarily offering increased bandwidth and efficiency. It would be a mistake to view the transition to 5G along these same lines. 5G takes Radio Area Networks (RANs) from a use model primarily for cell phone communications… Read More

Unlocking the Future with Robotic Precision and Human Creativity

From the perspective of all time for recorded human history, the last 300 years (a blink on that time scale) has seen incredible, life-changing and world-changing advances. Water and steam-driven machines first showed up in the 1700s. This is often called Industry 1.0. Powered assembly lines in the late 1800s became Industry … Read More


2D NoC Based FPGAs Valuable for SmartNIC Implementation

2D NoC Based FPGAs Valuable for SmartNIC Implementation
by Tom Simon on 12-29-2021 at 6:00 am

2D NoC SmartNIC

Smart network interface cards (SmartNICs) have proven themselves valuable in improving network efficiency. According to Scott Schweitzer, senior product manager at Achronix, it has been shown that SmartNICs can relieve up to – and perhaps beyond – 30% of the host processor’s loading. SmartNICs started out taking… Read More
