TOKYO, Oct. 15, 2019 — (PRNewswire) — Mipsology announced Zebra software support for the Xilinx Alveo U50 Data Center accelerator card. Zebra is the industry's premier "plug & play" software for accelerating AI inference and delivering the best performance on FPGAs.
Neural network inference can now be deployed faster than ever with Zebra on the Alveo U50 Data Center accelerator card. The latest Alveo accelerator card has a small form factor and a power of just 75W. Accelerating the Zebra software stack with Alveo accelerator cards delivers best-in-class performance transparently, replacing CPUs or GPUs for inference in a data center or at the edge.
Zebra delivers a range of critical capabilities:
- Fastest CNN inference - Zebra sets a new standard of performance.
- Supports all neural networks - Zebra accelerates all layers of any CNN.
- Easy to use - Zebra is a "plug & play" solution, no changes or retraining of the NN are required.
- No changes to the software environment - No new languages, frameworks or tools. Zebra works from within TensorFlow, PyTorch, ONNX, Caffe and MXNet.
- Scalable, flexible and adaptable - Zebra can replace GPUs or complement CPUs anywhere.
"We are excited to enable customers with Zebra support for the Alveo U50, the latest of the Alveo cards and the first half-height, half-length accelerator built with PCI Express 4.0 and HBM2 memories. Leveraging Zebra's AI compute capabilities, gives our customers unprecedented ability to easily accelerate neural networks and realize significant total cost of ownership benefits," said Ramine Roane, vice president of Software and AI Solutions Marketing, at Xilinx.
