The Advantage of Using FPGAs for AI
Field-Programmable Gate Arrays (FPGAs) are a type of reconfigurable hardware device that allows users to customize their digital logic circuits to perform specific tasks. Hence, using FPGAs for AI applications offers a significant advantage by allowing users to tailor circuits to specific AI workloads, leading to enhanced performance, energy efficiency, and adaptability.
With horizontal AI capabilities across silicon, IP, and software, our FPGAs provide seamless solutions to customer challenges from edge to cloud. Silicon capabilities range from high-speed transceivers to flexible DSP blocks with AI precision support such as FP32, FP16, INT8, INT4, and on-chip memory. Software and IP capabilities include flexible automatic generation of inference IP for AI and integration of hard and soft IP blocks for transceivers, security, video, and signal processing using the Intel FPGA AI Suite and Quartus Prime Software.
