Servicing Amazon EC2 F1 Customers

Amazon Web Services (AWS) recently introduced the Amazon EC2 F1 instance, a compute instance with FPGA for custom hardware acceleration. MLE's mission is to de-risk the adoption of FPGA technology in new markets and applications by offering expert Design Services.

To fully support customers in their Amazon EC2 F1 projects MLE has been enabled by Xilinx and Amazon with sufficient seats for the required toolchain, and documentation to fully support users interested in FPGA acceleration in the cloud! Click here for more information.


MLE Releases New Zynq SSE

With full support for Xilinx Vivado Version 2016.4 and PetaLinux Version 2016.4, including a new Linux kernel 4.6 device API, this new Zynq SSE offering also comes with a more customer-focused license fee structure. This reflects MLE's dedication to the growing needs of embedded applications using Xilinx Zynq-7000 All Programmable SoC with SATA connected Solid-State Drives. Click here for more information.


Presentation at FPGA4GPC 2017

MLE presents first OS metrics for DTO-based DPR based on exemplary implementations of programmable accelerators for the Linux Kernel Crypto-API, implemented on the Xilinx Zynq 7000 platform at the FPGA4GPC (International Conference on FPGA Reconfiguration for General-Purpose Computing 2017) on 2017-05-09 & 2017-05-10. These metrics can guide future research on OSs forGPC on FPGAs. FPGA4GPC focusses on novel work in the field of reconfigurable systems optimized for the use in a general-purpose environment.


Robert Milton Gardner, January 31 1943 - April 11 2017

On April 11, MLE's President & COO passed away after serious illness. As a co-founder, role model and mentor at MLE Bob took a significant part in shaping the team with his leadership style, his deep interest in semiconductor technology and strong personality. We will always keep his memory in honor.
