Please join us on Thursday, January 21st at 4:30PM for the next topic in AnaVation’s, Tech Talk series. This months topic is a discussion on FPGAs with guest speaker Mr. Roy Graham.
Roy is the CEO of DRC Computers, where he has a successful track record of implementing emerging technologies including data analytics, communications, servers, human identification systems and hybrid applications. Prior to coming to DRC, at Digital and Tandem Roy ran Product Management groups delivering > $10B in new revenue. Then he was SVP S&M at Wyse ($250M turnaround), and at Be (IPO) and CEO at 2 early stage web-based companies.
DRC Computer Corporation (DRC) designs and markets application appliances based on advanced reconfigurable coprocessors using the latest FPGAs (Field Programmable Gate Arrays). The DRC coprocessors are coded to run complex analytics and routines orders of magnitude faster than the same routines execute in to software on an x86 processor.
The combination of ultra-high performance, very low energy usage (typically less than 25 watts) and minimal space requirements makes the DRC coprocessors ideal for many national security applications. The technology produces actionable intelligence much faster (often 100x and more), and at a significantly lower cost and energy footprint (95%+ lower) than traditional computer technologies. And it can be used in severely constrained environments like UAVs (Unmanned Aerial Vehicles – drones) and ground combat vehicles.
DRC technology is highly scalable – recently announcing a world performance record in bioinformatics achieving 9.4 trillion cell updates per second using the Smith-Waterman technique. And at a price/performance 5 times better than previous records.
Roy will be joining us to discuss the technology and advantages. We look forward to seeing you on the 21st and having you be apart of this exciting technology exchange.
We encourage you to invite folks in your network who would be interested in learning and participating in this Tech Talk.
