Following on the recent announcement of the new Agilex FPGA family, Intel announced they are acquiring Omnitek – a developer of video and vision acceleration IP for FPGAs. As the market for FPGA-powered acceleration heats up, one of the killer applications is video and machine vision. FPGAs are extremely well suited to video analytics, as the combination of acceleration capabilities and flexible handling of high bit-rate data … Read More → "Intel Acquires Omnitek"
Let’s start with one hard fact. There are a lot of companies developing new AI inference processors right now, and most of them won’t survive. We have heard reports that as many as 80 startups are currently funded to some level, and all of them are working hard on building better mousetraps, or at least building better specialized processors that could execute neural network models … Read More → "FlexLogix Accelerates Edge Inference"
One of the most interesting announcements in Intel’s tidal wave of “Data-Centric” product and technology rollouts this month was the introduction of the company’s new “Agilex” FPGA families – formerly code-named “Falcon Mesa.” Agilex is the first new FPGA line developed by the former Altera group (now Intel PSG) since the Intel acquisition. Agilex is a milestone in the evolution of FPGA technology, and it … Read More → "Inside Intel Agilex FPGAs"
Today, Intel made what is likely to be their most important announcement of the year, or perhaps the next couple of years. Clearly the biggest headliner is the introduction of the “Second Generation Xeon Scalable Processors,” which are intended to carry the heaviest load in defending Intel’s estimated 99% market share in data center processors. But the breadth of the announcement is staggering and goes well … Read More → "Intel Rolls New Xeon Servers and More"
What do Moore’s Law, the Von Neuman Bottleneck, and alpha-band brain activity have in common?! This week’s episode of Amelia’s Weekly Fish Fry! Matthew Burns (Samtec) joins us to discuss how we can prepare for the next wave of high speed fabrics in embedded computing and why these new faster fabrics will make our design lives harder not easier. … Read More → "Faster Interconnect!
