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. Available from Nallatech, this PCI Express accelerator card features Altera’s latest generation of Stratix V Series FPGAs and enables FPGAs to work in concert with the host processor. No larger than a traditional network interface card, the PCIe-385N enables compatibility with high density server and blade centre platforms from leading OEMs.
