CONCORD, NH, May 6 — BittWare, the leader in Altera-based FPGA COTS boards, is pleased to announce that they have joined the Altera Preferred Board Partner Program for OpenCL. BittWare's S5-PCIe-HQ (S5PH-Q) PCIe COTS board is optimized for the most current Altera device architectures and design software and is supported by Altera's 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. BittWare is offering the S5PH-Q as part of their "OpenCL Developer's Bundle". The BittWare OpenCL Developer's bundle provides users the highest quality out-of-box development environment based on Altera hardware, FPGA development tools, and peripheral hardware and software.
"BittWare has been working diligently with Altera to provide an optimized, fully-tested, deployable Stratix V FPGA-based COTS board that is supported by the Altera SDK for OpenCL," said Darren Taylor, BittWare Senior Vice President of Worldwide Sales & Marketing. "We are pleased to be a part of Altera's Preferred Board Partner Program for OpenCL, giving us the ability to offer our customers a validated COTS PCI Express board complete with an OpenCL programming environment."
"Altera and BittWare continue to work together to deliver high-end, FPGA board-level solutions that significantly reduce technology risk and time-to-market for our mutual customers," said Alex Grbic, director of software, DSP and IP marketing at Altera. "BittWare has consistently leveraged the latest technology from Altera, which now includes an SDK for OpenCL, to dramatically reduce the design complexity for applications in the computing, financial and military markets."
BittWare's press release follows Altera's announcement today in regards to their Preferred Board Partner Program for OpenCL: "Altera Opens the World of FPGAs to Software Programmers with Broad Availability of SDK and Off-the-Shelf Boards for OpenCL."
