Today, mobile users are demanding that providers expand their networks. Enabling treatment for those who cannot reach a medical facility, equipping foot soldiers with multimedia communication, and ensuring high-speed internet access to those on the periphery of a cellular network are a few examples of edge applications delivering on such requirements. System developers can meet such demands by scaling their systems effectively and economically. Rather than opting for mid-range devices, they are looking for lower-power alternatives with similar feature sets, as found in the Artix-7 FPGA. By leveraging the Artix-7 family’s highest performance per watt at the lowest cost, applications can improve their reach to the edge of their traditional markets.
