SKARAB FPGA Supercomputer

Cyntony and Peralex announce the demonstration of SKARAB, an agile extreme-scale networked FPGA supercomputer for applications such as network intrusion detection, genome bioinformatics, high frequency trading and deep learning. SKARAB offers full control of its computing infrastructure, enabling low-latency 40GbE communications, real-time reconfiguration, and highly power efficient operation.


The SKARAB FPGA supercomputer demonstration shows flawless operation at full rate 40 GbE through a network switch and periodic sub-second FPGA reconfiguration.   Only 40-50W is required to power the processing, networking and management functions.
