Track 2: Board-Level & Connectivity

Maximize External Memory Bandwidth Efficiency with Any Access Pattern – Raymond Nijssen, VP and Chief Technologist, Achronix

This presentation details how to manage bandwidth limitations and leverage FPGA features to achieve effective DRAM bandwidth efficiency close to the theoretical upper limit, even with worst-case access patterns. The presentation showcases how this level of bandwidth efficiency can be easily achieved with practical FPGA designs using the GDDR6 memory subsystem and high-bandwidth 2D NoC found in Achronix Speedster7t FPGAs.

Achronix will be showcasing FPGA technologies built for acceleration of AI, ML, networking, data center automotive and other HPC applications:

  • Speedster®7t FPGAs – high-performance FPGAs with a 2D network on chip. Delivers ASIC-level performance with the full programmability of FPGAs.
  • Speedcore™ eFPGA IP – Over 15 million eFPGA IP cores shipped. Brings the performance and flexibility of programmable logic to ASICs and SoCs.
  • VectorPath® Accelerator Cards – PCIe accelerator cards for rapid prototyping and production. Offers 400G Ethernet, PCIe Gen4 and 4 Tbps of GDDR6 memory bandwidth.

Live Demonstrations

Stop by our booth for a demonstration of our two-dimensional network on chip (2D NoC). Truly 2D, the Speedster NoC has access points located throughout the FPGA core that provide an aggregate of 20 Tbps of bandwidth for interfacing to off-chip resources such as GDDR6 and DDR4 memories, PCI Express interfaces and 400G Ethernet ports, internal hard IP blocks such as the machine learning processors and the FPGA fabric itself.
