Nallatech’s 385 and 395 FPGA accelerator cards offer excellent processing performance and low power consumption needed for financial acceleration applications. The FPGA-accelerated cards provide enable highly complex functions to be implemented with minimum impact. With the FPGA acting as the gatekeeper, real-time intelligent processing can be executed instantly, ensuring compliance is met at the transaction level.

By supporting the Altera Software Development Kit (SDK) for OpenCL, Nallatech’s FPGA-based cards work in concert with the host processor to accelerate parallel computation at a fraction of the power compared to traditional alternatives. Nallatech’s Stratix V FPGA-based accelerator cards combined with Altera’s SDK for OpenCL offer an ultra-low latency, high performance, low power solution that can be designed by software programmers using a high-level programming language.
