Algo-Logic Systems Demonstrates a Black Diamond and Low Latency KVS on Xilinx Alveo U200

SAN JOSE, California., October 2, 2018 (Xilinx Developer Forum) - Algo-Logic Systems, Inc., a recognized leader of Gateware Defined Networking (GDN) accelerated applications, products, and solutions announces three new products at the Xilinx Developer Forum (XDF) 2018. Algo-Logic’s newest Field Programmable Gate Array (FPGA) offerings and dashboards together provide a complete solution for acquiring, fusing, analyzing, and visualizing live data. XDF connects software developers and system designers to the deep expertise of Xilinx engineers, partners, and industry leaders.

The 3rd generation Black Diamond Rackmount (BDR-3) acquires data from all types of analog sensors to record motion (acceleration), power (voltage, currents), pressure (air, water), and other inputs by recording and streaming precisely synchronized channels with high resolution over Gigabit Ethernet. The system reads data from multiple types of sensors, performs advanced signal processing, and time-stamps data with GPS precision using FPGA logic.

Algo-Logic’s new Key Value Store (KVS) on UltraScale+ architecture provides in-memory object store with the record-breaking latency and throughput performance to enable sensor fusion, real-time analytics and scale out machine learning. Implemented on the new Xilinx Alveo U200 Data Center accelerator card, the KVS merges live data from multiple sources, shares data with algorithms that perform inference and scale-out machine learning, and sources data for actuators and live visualization. The Alveo U200 accelerator cards with the Algo-Logic KVS can be installed in a standard PCIe slots, deployed in data centers, and/or accessed over the AlgoCentral cloud as a service.

Key Benefits – KVS + BDR-3 Integrated System:

  • Key Value Store (KVS) for real-time data fusion and scalable analytics
    • In memory database providing fully associative object store
    • UltraScale+ FPGA implementation provides sub-microsecond latency
    • Achieves over 100 million IOPS per second using on-chip and off-chip RAM
  • Black Diamond Rackmount (BDR-3) for real-time data acquisition from sensors
    • Collects data from a wide range of sensors (accelerometers, strain, energy, etc.)
    • Zynq SoC precisely records, time-stamps, and streams GPS-synchronized data
    • Runs from multiple power sources such as: DC, AC, battery, or solar power
  • Real-time Analytics Dashboards
    • Integrates live data from KVS into immersive, 3D visualizations
    • Charts and graphs live data from KVS to a lightweight, 2D web dashboard
    • AlgoCentral cloud-hosted service provides views and analytics of data
