DPDK and FPGA: A Winning Combination for High-Performance Networking!

Abstract of the webinar:

Data Plane Development Kit (DPDK) is a set of libraries and drivers that accelerate packet processing performance in network functions. Field-Programmable Gate Arrays (FPGAs) are reconfigurable hardware devices that can be programmed to accelerate specific applications. The combination of DPDK and FPGA provides an opportunity to build high-performance networking applications.

In this webinar, we provided an overview of DPDK and FPGA-based networking solutions. We discussed the basics of FPGA development and DPDK programming, guiding beginners to get started. We also covered more advanced topics such as optimizing DPDK and FPGA-based applications for maximum performance.

Topics covered in this webinar:

  • Importance of topic & market size
  • NICs architecture & DPDK
  • Where to start with DPDK
  • Field Programmable Gate Arrays (FPGA)
  • Where to start with FPGA
  • FPGA SmartNICs, use-cases and DPDK RTE Flow
  • Summary with outcomes
  • How to start

Speaker BIO

Jan Viktorin is a skilled FPGA technologist who has been immersed in this exciting technology since his university days in Brno. His diploma thesis focused on the effective use of FPGA technology, and it was so impressive that it has been deployed in several commercial projects that are still in use today.

Throughout his career, Jan has worked on various projects related to network traffic processing using high-end FPGAs from a variety of manufacturers. He is an active member of the DPDK developer community and has authored several patches that have been widely adopted.

His expertise in FPGA technology and DPDK is highly sought after, and he has lectured on these topics to several large technology companies. He is currently a senior developer for a company that specializes in developing FPGA solutions for its infrastructure protection, and he also serves as a technical director for external clients.

Jan Viktorin is passionate about sharing his knowledge and experience. He lectures as an external lecturer for BrnoLogic company, inspiring the next generation of technologists with his exciting and engaging presentations.
