It is now official; Accolade is a supplier of FPGA intellectual property (IP) for Xilinx Alveo Accelerator Cards. Take a look at our joint solution brief which describes the vast capabilities that Accolade brings to the Xilinx hardware.
Accolade has exclusively used Xilinx FPGAs since the very beginning and with this latest effort the partnership has grown even closer. Accolade has been working with Xilinx since the introduction of Alveo back in 2018 to ensure that customers around the world have access to Accolade, groundbreaking FPGA IP such as flow shunting and deduplication within any hardware footprint they want.
This does not mean we will no longer produce our own hardware adapters or use some other third-party card beyond Xilinx. There are many reasons to work across different hardware, ranging from form factor to end-customer preference and everything in between. So, for the foreseeable future we will support a wide variety of different hardware and ultimately let our customers decide which they prefer.
