At the end of December 2019, the finals of the 3rd Beihang Global Innovation and Entrepreneurship Competition were held in Beijing. After fierce confrontation and selection in the preliminary and semi-finals, Shenwei Technology’s entry project “FPGA Heterogeneous Computing Acceleration Solution for Ultra-High Performance Data Center” stood out from more than 100 entries and won the second prize of this Global Innovation and Entrepreneurship Competition .

Shenwei Technology’s ultra-high-performance data center FPGA heterogeneous computing acceleration solution is based on the most efficient Google WebP compression technology. Based on FPGA heterogeneous foundation, the ThunderImage JPEG2WEP transcoding solution has been developed, with Baseline (an M4 mode) as the For example, the business processing capacity of ThunderImage JPEG2WebP is equivalent to 10 times the processing capacity of the CPU (E5-2680v4), reaching an astonishing 3600 frames per second, and the response delay is reduced by 9 times compared to the CPU. The improvement of these technologies will greatly save the network traffic and data storage pressure caused by the high-definition and massive spewing images that data center operators face between balancing user experience and operating costs.

At present, Alibaba Cloud and Tencent Cloud have successively released the ThunderImage JPEG2JPEG image service of Shenwei Technology. Compared with its previous 32-core CPU, the throughput rate brought by ThunderImage technology has increased by 5.3 times and 9.4 times respectively, and the processing delay has been reduced by 6 times. times and 4 times (the ratio is higher when compared to 8-core CPU instances).

Fan Ping, CEO of Shenwei Technology, said that standing out from more than 100 participating projects this time is the industry’s recognition and encouragement for Shenwei Technology’s data acceleration program. “In the future, Shenwei Technology will continue to work hard to continue to give full play to the company’s technical advantages in image processing and FPGA heterogeneous computing, and bring different computing experience to cloud computing, image and video processing and other fields.”

Since the 3rd Beihang Global Innovation and Entrepreneurship Competition started in September, it has successively entered the Beijing-Tianjin-Hebei, Yangtze River Delta, Midwest and Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Areas, attracting students from Beihang University, Tsinghua University, Peking University, Beijing Institute of Technology , Beijing University of Posts and Telecommunications, Huazhong University of Science and Technology, Northeastern University, National University of Singapore, Nagoya University of Japan and other famous universities at home and abroad, a total of more than 100 innovative projects participated. At the site of the finals, Zhao Gang, Deputy Secretary of the Party Committee of Beihang University, Lin Jianhua, Executive Deputy Director of Haidian Park Management Committee of Zhongguancun Science and Technology Park, Director of Haidian District Science, Technology and Economic Information Bureau, Wang Youhong, Director of Alumni Liaison and Development Office of Beihang University and other leaders Guests, as well as representatives from investment institutions, industry associations, university research institutes and enterprises attended the event.
