Some of the largest data centers in the world, including Amazon, Facebook, and Google, are growing so significantly they are demanding more performance than they can get out of the fastest CPUs. Complicated data analytics and 4K live streaming videos are some of the applications are being offloaded to extremely fast accelerators that provide ten times the speed and performance of the standard CPU. 


Amazon is one of the largest companies using FPGA (field programmable gate array) cloud services and built high-tech custom servers that allow public F1 Elastic Cloud instances which support up to eight Xilinx Ultrascale+ FPGA per instance. Amazon has not discussed the availability of the Xilinx acceleration stack but adding those capacities would create a larger market for developers. Using FPGA for cloud computing is a significant milestone for Xilinx and FPGAs in general.

Search for FPGA

Because of their durability and performance, FPGA are the top choice for computing solutions. The flexibility of FPGA allows for hardware and software control implemented in the processor core. FPGA programmability allows for easy implementation of high-performance logic circuits. FPGA are the best choice due to their performance, reliability, and system-cost advantages.
