The AOE provides users with an open platform for "on-the-fly" processing of network data, allowing users to migrate portions of their business logic to the FPGA. By processing data on the FPGA before it reaches the server CPU, the AOE reduces application run-time and decreases overall latency and CPU workloads.

"Many of our customers are building network-intensive applications that require extreme low latency. While microprocessors are continuing to expand processing power with a multi-core appr
