Our Mission:

FPGA computing for HPC, scalable, efficient, easy to use

Scalable Performance

The performance of paraXent FPGA accelerators is scalable across a large number of FPGA compute nodes. A dedicated, high-speed, low-latency communication infrastructure supports various communication topologies. Run-time reconfiguration of the communication infrastructure allows optimizing the communication topology to different application requirements.

Technology: Highly Scalable FPGA Clustering

  • Dedicated, high-speed, low-latency communication infrastructure across FPGA cluster
  • Integrated, run-time reconfigurable crosspoint switch matrix
  • Optimal communication topology defined by application requirements
  • No re-wiring when switching between applications with different topology requirement

TCO Optimization

FPGA technology allows energy-efficient computing. Unlike CPUs or GPUs, FPGAs can be tailored towards the specific needs of an application in a very fine-grained manner. On top of that, paraXent FPGA accelerators offer easy manageability through integration in common monitoring and deployment frameworks.
