As the deployment of Industrial IoT systems continue to proliferate, the streams of data transferred from the edge to the cloud skyrockets, drastically increasing the cost for cloud computing. To solve this, many system designers have started to adopt edge processing or edge computing, in which data processing is done closer to the source/sensor. Their main goal is to reduce the cost of data storage and cloud computing, reduce the amount of data transfer from edge to the cloud, enhance edge-generated data processing, shrink latency and increase security.

Edge processing requires high-performance processing systems with low-power, which are easily satisfied by FPGAs because of their inherent re-programmability, deep pipelining structures, massive parallel compute resources and low power consumption. In this webinar, we will introduce the benefits of using FPGAs for edge processing and we will show you how to connect an FPGA board to AWS cloud for cloud computing.
