CAMARILLO, Calif., Nov. 8 – Nallatech, a leading supplier of high-performance FPGA solutions, announces that the PCIe-385N FPGA accelerator card now supports the Altera Software Development Kit (SDK) for OpenCL – an open computing language that combines the massively parallel architecture of an FPGA with the OpenCL parallel programming model. This PCI Express accelerator card, featuring Altera’s latest generation of Stratix V Series FPGAs, enables FPGAs to work in concert with the host processor to accelerate parallel computation at a fraction of the power compared to hardware alternatives. Visitors to next week’s Supercomputing 2012 in Salt Lake City, UT, can learn more about OpenCL and Nallatech’s PCIe-385N Stratix V accelerator card in booth #1930.
“Nallatech’s cost-effective PCIe-385N FPGA accelerator card features a simple, yet powerful architecture compatible with the OpenCL tool flow,” said Allan Cantle, president and founder of Nallatech. “OpenCL support for Altera FPGAs is a game changer. By dramatically simplifying the programming model, Altera has enabled the adoption of energy efficient FPGA accelerators for heterogeneous computing platforms.”
The PCIe-385N is a “low profile” half height, half length PCI Express card no larger than a traditional network interface card. This enables compatibility with high density server and blade center platforms from leading OEMs.
Altera’s OpenCL initiative engages customers in an Early Access Program on how to implement designs in FPGAs using an OpenCL flow. Further information about Altera’s SDK for OpenCL can be found at:
Nallatech is now delivering production units of the PCIe-385N and accepting new orders. For more information about this product, please visit www.nallatech.com/opencl.
