Learning to Let It Go: Obsolescence Management and an OEM Tale of Woe

“Some people believe holding on and hanging in there are signs of great strength. However, there are times when it takes much more strength to know when to let go and then do it.” – Ann Landers 

In this week’s podcast, we dive deep into the world of long-term product sustainment practices and obsolescence management. Tania Scroggie (GDCA) joins us to discuss the challenges of older designs in today’s OEMs, the delicate balance between sales and obsolete inventory, and how we can best evaluate product end of life. Also this week,  we check out the details of the first biodegradable display developed by a group of scientists at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology.

An FPGA-Based Solution for a Graph Neural Network Accelerator

Sponsored by Achronix

Graph Neural Networks (GNN) drive high demand for compute and memory performance and a software only based implementation of a GNN does not meet performance targets. As a result, there is an urgent need for hardware-based GNN acceleration. While traditional convolutional neural network (CNN) hardware acceleration has many solutions, the hardware acceleration of GNN has not been fully discussed and researched. This white paper reviews the latest GNN algorithms, the current status of acceleration technology research, and discusses FPGA-based GNN acceleration technology.
