Xilinx Developer Forum (XDF) 2019 Europe


Myrtle.ai will describe how their RNN accelerator on an Alveo U250 outperforms alternatives in throughput, power and latency. They will describe how this has been achieved by exploiting unstructured sparsity and quantisation implemented on a scalable array of highly optimised MAU Acceleratorâ„¢ cores. The results of a comparison using a DeepSpeech benchmark will demonstrate this FPGA advantage in a range of applications including speech to text transcription and time series analysis.
