What is an FPGA?
An FPGA is a programmable logic device (PLD).
FPGAs based on Intel (Altera) PSG processors accelerate algorithm performance by implementing parallel operations in standard computational processes.
The FPGA logic comes from its programming, not initial manufacturing, which is standard for digital micro-schemes.
The FPGA accelerator is a PCI adapter that can be used as a coprocessor for accelerating compute-intensive applications.
