Achronix will be participating in TSMC's 2023 North America Technology Symposium on April 26, 2023, in Santa Clara, California. This year's event features keynotes and technology updates on TSMC's latest advancements in smartphone, HPC, IoT, and automotive platform solutions. The symposium is an excellent opportunity to learn about TSMC's advanced technology progress on 7nm, 6nm, 5nm, 4nm, 3nm processes, and beyond.

Accelerated Automatic Speech Recognition Demo

The highlight of the Achronix presence at the event will be the demonstration of its accelerated automatic speech recognition (ASR) solution running in the Speedster®7t FPGA on a VectorPath® accelerator card. This complete solution with a host API developed by partner requires no RTL or FPGA knowledge and is compatible with all major deep learning frameworks including PyTorch and Caffe 2. The resulting solution hosted on an Achronix Speedster7t FPGA on a VectorPath accelerator card provides low-latency, real-time speech-to-text, reducing costs by 90% compared to 20 CPU-based servers.

In addition to the ASR video demo, Achronix will also showcase its latest FPGA and eFPGA IP solutions for high-bandwidth, compute-intensive, and real-time processing applications. These solutions include:

  • Speedster7t FPGAs, which provide ASIC-level performance with the full programmability of an FPGA
  • Speedcore eFPGA IP, which brings the performance and flexibility of programmable logic to ASICs and SoCs
  • VectorPath Accelerator Cards, which are PCIe accelerator cards for rapid prototyping and production, offering 400G and 200G Ethernet and high-bandwidth GDDR6 memory interfaces
