Intel’s news source for media, analysts and everyone curious about the company.

This year, at Intel’s virtual FPGA Technology Day, Intel announced a new, customizable solution to help accelerate application performance across 5G, artificial intelligence, cloud and edge workloads. The new Intel® eASIC N5X is the first structured eASIC family with an Intel® FPGA compatible hard processor system. The Intel eASIC N5X helps customers migrate both their custom logic and designs — using the embedded hard processor in the FPGA — to structured ASICs, bringing benefits like lower unit cost, faster performance and reduced power consumption.

In addition to this, Intel also announced the new Intel® Open FPGA Stack (Intel® OFS), a scalable, source-accessible hardware and software infrastructure delivered through git repositories that makes it easier for hardware, software and application developers to create custom acceleration platforms and solutions.

Intel FPGA Technology Day is a one-day virtual event on Nov. 18, 2020, that brings together Intel executives, partners and customers to showcase the latest Intel programmable products and solutions through a series of keynotes, webinars and demonstrations.

A high-level block diagram outlines the hardware and software deliverables for Intel Open FPGA Stack (Intel OFS). The bottom half depicts a PCI Express board with an Intel FPGA. Board and application developers use the hardware code to develop the FPGA interface manager and workloads. The Intel FPGA uses the PCI Express interface to pass data to and from the host beginning with the Linux drivers and open programmable acceleration engine library. Intel OFS also includes foundational application examples. (Credit: Intel Corporation)
