Repetitive and CPU Intensive Tasks are Ideal Candidates for Offload to an FPGA
FPGA offload enables remarkable scaling of software applications restricted by CPU bottlenecks
An FPGA is a programmable device well-suited to performing application specific functions or algorithms. These functions run the gamut from something very specific such as a proprietary security algorithm to more generic requirements such as time stamping, packet filtering or data deduplication. A repetitive and CPU intensive task is the ideal candidate for offload to an FPGA. It is not uncommon to reduce CPU load by over 50 percent with the help of an FPGA.
