Universities and academic research centers fuel innovation while building the next generation of software and hardware engineers and computer scientists. It is imperative to Intel that we forge a strong, worldwide, collaborative academic community to foster practical application and research of FPGA-based acceleration.
There are currently two companion Intel® FPGA academic programs designed to provide students, faculty, and researchers with advance access to Intel Xeon® CPU and FPGA solutions. See the following programs below:
Intel® FPGA University Program
A worldwide program delivering a variety of teaching materials for use in university-level digital logic, computer organization, and embedded system courses worldwide. Materials include state-of-the art computer-aided design (CAD) software tools, teaching hardware in the form of laboratory boards, tutorials that introduce students and course instructors to Intel® FPGA tools and hardware, and ready-to-teach laboratory exercises.
A global program that provides faculty and researchers early access to preproduction Intel® Xeon® processors with FPGAs. This program is spurring research in programming tools, operating systems, and innovative applications for accelerator-based computing systems. The program offers tutorials, workshops, technical support, community forums, and opportunities for participants to showcase their research and results.
