Intel and eASIC in pact targeting data center market

Intel has collaborated with eASIC to develop products that combine processing performance and customizable hardware to meet the demand for custom compute solutions for data centers and the cloud.

Also, eASIC platform with Intel accelerates workloads like security and big data analytics, up to two times that of field programmable gate array (FPGA).

Time to market is also increased for custom application specific integrated circuit (ASIC) development by 50 percent.

In order to make application or workload run faster, eASIC plans to integrate its eASIC platform technology with future Intel Xeon processors.

Company officials said this will provide cloud service providers a highly customized, integrated hardware solution.

Additionally, eASIC’s technology on comparing with traditional ASICs increases flexibility and fast time to market and also increase performance and lower power consumption when compared to FPGAs.

Company said Intel can deliver faster and flexible systems for cloud customers by integrating hardware accelerator solutions with the eASIC platform.

Companies plans to deliver Intel Xeon processors with eASIC platform and the strategy to integrate reprogrammable technology with Intel Xeon processors to improve performance, power and cost.

“The combination of eASIC and Intel technology will help bring break through cost and performance to our customers,” said Ronnie Vasishta, president and chief executive office at eASIC.

Few days ago, Intel unveiled the Intel Xeon processor E7-8800/4800 v3 promising better performance for computing.

Last month, Intel and Ingenico Group developed a mobile tablet that supports EMV and NFC payment that will assist banks to prevent credit card fraud targeting Internet of Things (IoT) market.
