CONCORD, N.H., Jan. 11 – BittWare, the leader in Altera-based FPGA COTS boards, announced today that their S5-PCIe-HQ (S5PH-Q) PCIe COTS board populated with the Altera Stratix V GSMD5 device has been specially priced for use with Altera's Software Development Kit (SDK) for OpenCL. The S5PH-Q is a half-length PCIe card based on Altera's high-performance 28-nm Stratix V FPGAs, providing a versatile and efficient solution for high-performance network processing, signal processing, and data acquisition. The S5PH-Q GSMD5 is available now for Altera OpenCL Early Access Program (EAP) customers, along with BittWare's BittWorks II Toolkit and Altera's SDK for OpenCL, creating an ideal platform for Stratix V-based OpenCL development. Future Altera SDK support for BittWare's S5PH-Q will include both the Altera Stratix V GSMD8 and GXMA7 devices.
"OpenCL for FPGAs provides many benefits - fast time-to-market, quick design exploration, design re-use, and high performance coupled with low power," stated Ron Huizen, BittWare Vice President of Technology. "When OpenCL is used on a fully-tested, deployable COTS board, the benefits double, giving developers access to the latest generation of high-performance FPGAs on a validated COTS PCI Express board, while also providing them the opportunity to significantly reduce their time-to-market by making use of OpenCL kernels to target Altera FPGAs."
