New generations of FPGAs present developers with a level of processing performance and potential I/O bandwidth that cannot easily be matched by conventional CPU configurations. While many COTS solutions enable developers to readily make use of FPGAs for processing, the real challenge to an application is often measured in terms of I/O bandwidth, latency and connectivity.
