Heavy Lifting Hardware

High Performance Computing with FPGAs and FinFET ASICs

It’s time to break out your barbells, chalk powder and protein shakes, because we’re going to be doing some serious heavy lifting in this week’s episode of Fish Fry. Instead of letting our biceps and triceps do all the work, how about we pull in some heavy-duty hardware to help us out? First up, we bring in Lisa Minwell from eSilicon who joins us to chat about the high-performance computing demands we need to consider when designing for the Cloud and the details of eSilicon’s 14LPP IP Platform. Next, we’ve got Steve Mensor from Achronix who brings us the goods on FPGAs in the high-performance market and why your FPGAs are only as good as their software support tools. Also this week, we check out a new Kickstarter campaign called of the BitNation Space Agency that hopes to develop the world’s first international, decentralized, and open source Space Agency.
