AI Comes to ASICs in Data Centers

A novice AI ASIC designer could be advised to lean on someone like eSilicon just as Nervana did. After all, the ASIC expert could give some comfort and solid technology foothold in AI ASICs backed by its own real-world experience.

FPGAs Becoming More SoC-Like

“For AI, FPGAs are always going to be constrained both in capacity and performance, so you will not be able to really get to production-level specs with an FPGA. You can play with it and group things, but ultimately you’re going to have to get to an ASIC.”
