Every server comes with:
FPGA stands for Field Programmable Gate Array. It is a programmable integrated circuit designed to be configured by the user before running the application.
Because FPGA are hardware programmed to run one application, the performance can be much higher than on a classical CPU architecture (with software compilation). The main fields are:
- - video & image processing,
- - communications,
- - digital signal processing,
- - high performance computing,
- - data mining
The most used language is HDL (VDHL, Verilog), but it can also be coded in OpenCL.
The FPGA Server is delivered with a Linux distribution, and the Bittware tool that allows to transfer your application onto the FPGA card.
