385 PCIe accelerator boards

Nallatech, a supplier of FPGA solutions, has become a member of the Altera Preferred Board Partner Program for OpenCL. By supporting the Altera Software Development Kit (SDK) for OpenCL, Nallatech’ says its 385 PCIe accelerator boards work in concert with the host processor to deliver higher performance at lower power, compared to alternative hardware architectures.  

'Nallatech’s accelerator boards are an excellent complement to our Stratix V FPGAs as we work to deliver complete, integrated solutions to customers in the financial, medical, and broadcast markets,' said Alex Grbic, director of software, DSP and IP marketing at Altera. 'As a member of our preferred board partner programme, Nallatech’s optimised production boards will help our mutual customers access the high performance capabilities of our FPGAs using OpenCL and get to market faster.'

Third-party production boards meet the strict requirements of the Altera Preferred Board Partner Program for OpenCL. Member boards are optimised for the most current Altera device architectures and design software. Altera works closely with selected partners to ensure that their boards continually meet these standards.
