1 Whether targeted to HPC or embedded applications, Pico Computing s modular and highly-scalable architecture, based on Field Programmable Gate Array (FPGA) technologies, brings orders-of-magnitude performance gains, greatly reduced energy costs, the industry s smallest form factor, and simplified apnow you can We re knocking down the technology barriers to high-performance computing so you can move your enterprise forward Our modular, highly scalable FPGA-based HPC and embedded systems solve the biggest of the big data computing challenges from the edge to the data center to the desktop. Whatever your hardware acceleration needs, we make it work, we make it scale, we make it easy. P ico Computing addresses the foremost challenges associated with the real-time processing of big, streaming data: time and money. By solving the big data compute problems including those at the extreme edge of the network processes that used to take hours are reduced to seconds; what used to require thousands of expensive servers is accomplished often in a single, lowpower, low-cost rack space, enabling the creation of new and highly differentiated business value, as well as the rare insights that produce real innovation. The era of big and ubiquitous data brings not only new challenges, but unprecedented opportunities. The secret to competitive success in the new era lies in knowing how to exploit those opportunities, to unlock the prized answers hiding in all that data and do it instantly and at low cost. To these ends, Pico Computing s technologies enable breakthrough applications and business models that were previously impossible or simply unimagined. Pico Computing s technologies enable breakthrough applications and business models that were previously impossible or simply unimagined. What We Do Pico Computing solutions enable enterprises to solve previously insurmountable problems, and in the process, rethink their business models with new opportunities to substantially lower operating costs, increase profitability, and even create new markets.

2 2 plication design. Equally important, we make accelerated computing technology easy to use. Our customers accelerated computing applications span cryptography to bioinformatics; image processing to networking; scientific computing and simulation to signal processing; persistent consumer apps to making the Internet of Things real, and more. Information is power and time is money. If these are the fuels that drive business, then Pico Computing is the accelerant. How We Do It To increase business bandwidth, you ve got to increase your computing bandwidth. That means eliminating the data bottlenecks. Pico Computing accomplishes this through a patents-pending combination of technologies that leverage the previously untapped power of the PCI Express bus, and a flexible system architecture that grows easily with your needs. The mating of Pico Computing s unique, modular, and reconfigurable FPGA-based solutions with a powerful development framework means you can go from proof of concept to production with virtually no intermediate steps. But this is only one way we help organizations save time and money: On the engineering front, we eliminate the need to reinvent the wheel. By providing the complete high performance computing engine and the application development framework, organizations Modular components and can deploy their engineering resources far more efficiently, and in scalable solutions yield ways that allow them to design production-ready features faster. On powerful, flexible, and the operations front, we eliminate the unproductive time that adds future-proof HPC systems. up to years of man hours your analysts are spending waiting on servers to crunch numbers. On the marketing and business development fronts, it means being well positioned to exploit narrow market windows with timely, valuable data and product capabilities that will enable you to outperform your competitors. Simply put, Pico Computing solutions slash direct costs, eliminate many indirect costs, and recover opportunity costs so that your organization can operate and innovate more efficiently, securely, and profitably. Pico Computing solutions find their sweet spot in myriad applications where the most aggressive demands for high performance, form factor, scalability, power, and cost all come together. And yet, while

3 3 Pico Computing technology is at work enabling advanced research, improving national security, and driving numerous, esoteric, leading edge applications, our solutions are also quite mainstream, making possible whole new classes of data-driven consumer apps. For many markets and applications particularly those involving real-time Pico Computing decision making in the context of massive volumes of continuously-streaming data the ability to simply keep up will determine your ability to sur- solutions slash direct costs, vive in your market. The performance levels enabled by Pico Computing eliminate many solutions combined with their inherent cost effectiveness make this, and indirect costs, and more, possible. recover opportunity costs so that your The Technology organization can operate and Unmatched innovate more Compute Density efficiently, securely, Compute density, of course, and profitably. goes hand in hand with form Unparalleled logic density yields factor. The Pico Computing small, low cost, low power footprint. architecture allows more computing per square inch (and with less power consumption) than any other alternative. This is due to the combination of large-scale FPGAs and an approach to system design that includes not just one or two, but many FPGAs per PCIe board, yielding an unmatched level of logic density per unit of rack space. Moreover, our patents-pending technology exploits the full bandwidth of the PCIe bus, enabling even greater performance within a very small form factor. Industry-leading FPGA Expertise Because engineering organizations tend to specialize around a particular FPGA vendor s design environment and tool flow, Pico Computing is FPGA vendor- and design flow-agnostic, providing options for either Xilinx or Altera-based modules. In either case, the Pico Computing solution presents the same PCIe board interface, backplane, and API for a seamless integration experience. Pico Pico Computing supports all FPGA Computing is also among the first to adopt OpenCL, the design flows including OpenCL. parallel programming framework that compiles C code to CPUs, GPUs, FPGAs, and other devices.

4 4 A Fully Featured Design Framework Unlike other solution providers, Pico Computing doesn t leave engineers stranded with the hardware, leaving it to them to figure it out. Our software framework and firmware solutions complement and complete the solution, making easy work of system design and integration so that you can get to a Pico Computing s unique approach can save you many thousands of dollars in development effort, yielding the lowest total cost of ownership and a much better HPC design experience in the bargain. working system quickly and without grief. In short, Pico Computing s unique approach can save you many thousands of dollars in development effort, yielding the lowest total cost of ownership and a much better HPC design experience in the bargain. Truly High Performance Pico Computing is the only provider of HPC solutions that fully comprehends the meaning of high performance. Here s just one proof point: All other solution providers present a significant bottleneck to system performance in the way they use the PCIe bus to access the computing modules, limiting throughput with x4 or x8 schemes and with just one FPGA per PCIe slot (and slots are not cheap)! Pico Computing, on the other hand, provides a x16 PCIe from the host and a x8 PCIe to every module, which allows the host to directly address the many FPGAs on the board (up to six per board and up to 48-chip clusters in a chassis), with a potentially different data operation running on each of them concurrently, and passing data between the FPGAs without host involvement. In other words, we ve eliminated the traffic cop, increased compute power by orders of magnitude, and enabled a level of parallel processing and compute speed never before realized in a PCIe environment. What s more, Pico Computing is the first to market with PCIe Gen 3-compliant module, again taking the lead in FPGA-based high performance computing. Populate a single chassis with as many as 48 FPGAs to support massively parallel computing operations Scalability Whether your computing requirements are satisfied with a single module or many right now or later flexibility will prove essential. Pico Computing solutions are truly plug-and-play, making system expansion as simple as plugging additional modules into the backplane. Startup projects in particular shouldn t have to pay the budget penalties imposed by other solution providers whose systems are

5 5 large, expensive, and do not scale. Moreover, with Pico Computing, our modular approach won t limit your efficiencies as you grow. When your application and bandwidth requirements...we ve eliminated the traffic reach an appropriate cost/performance tradeoff threshold, cop, increased compute power by we can convert the system to a more integrated solution; with orders of magnitude, and enabled our full customization, application, and engineering services, a level of parallel processing you can put Pico Computing s HPC and embedded systems expertise to work for you. realized in a PCIe environment. and compute speed never before System Design Because Pico Computing brings a true system design orientation to our solutions, we provide maximum system design flexibility. Whether you plan to use our modules in a complex HPC system, or in an embedded application, we provide all the hardware, software, and firmware you ll need to bring your application to high performance fruition, with everything you ll need for system design and rapid prototype development. And once your design is complete, you can put the result right into production. It really is that easy. Grow your HPC capabilities as your data demands or budget allows. About Pico Computing Pico Computing is the technology leader in high-performance computing. Our modular, highly scalable FPGA-based HPC and embedded systems solve the biggest of the big data computing challenges from the edge to the data center to the desktop. Whatever your hardware acceleration needs, we make it work, we make it scale, we make it easy.
