Netseminar: Accelerate Applications with FPGA Coprocessors

Sponsored by AMD and Altera

Overview

Are you ready to speed up your high-performance applications without drastic increases in your power budget? Would like to accelerate your existing C-code applications by taking them directly to hardware? This 25-minute net seminar shows you how to achieve these goals while gaining maximum performance at a better price/performance ratio than processors alone.

Join Altera’s Senior Vice President of R&D and AMD’s Division Manager of Acceleration Strategies to learn:

  • Why your current solution is not meeting your performance needs
  • How to accelerate algorithms and applications over 100x
  • Why porting applications to FPGAs speeds up your entire system, saving time and money

Who Should View

  • Financial, medical, and insurance industry IT managers
  • Engineering and technical managers
  • System architects
