Next to CPUs and GPUs, FPGAs occupy an increasingly important place in modern processing platforms. In this meeting we will highlight the benefits of an FPGA technology and how to optimally benefit from its features.

During the sessions we will address questions such as:what exactly can you do with an FPGA, for which applications is FPGA technology specifically suitable, what distinguishes FPGAs from CPUs, GPUs and AI accelerators?

Heterogeneous chip solutions, utilizing both FPGA technology and CPU, are becoming more commonly used. What benefits does this provide and how can you use them?

The aim of the afternoon is to shed light on these subjects from different angles.
