Nallatech 395 FPGA Accelerator Card Features Altera Stratix V FPGA

Nallatech 395 FPGA accelerator card for data-intensive network and co-processing applications

Nallatech introduced the 395 FPGA accelerator card for data-intensive network and co-processing applications. The new Nallatech 395 card is aimed at latency-critical and co-processing applications that can utilize the largest FPGA devices and highest memory bandwidth. The 395 FPGA accelerator card is ideal for signals intelligence, network security and algorithm acceleration applications. The company has delivered first prototypes of the 395. Production units will be available next quarter.

The Nallatech 395 FPGA accelerator card features four SFP+ network interfaces. The 395 also supports the Altera Software Development Kit (SDK) for OpenCL, which allows designers to combine the OpenCL programming model with Altera’s massively parallel FPGA architecture for high performance, energy efficient computing. This combination enables dramatic acceleration of compute-intensive applications while reducing power consumption and total cost of ownership.
