Nallatech introduced the 385 and 395 accelerator cards. The new PCIe cards feature Altera Stratix V FPGAs. Nallatech’s accelerator cards are also qualified by leading vendors’ high density server and blade platforms and are ready for deployment with pre-integrated software and IP. The FPGA-based cards are ideal for financial applications such as high frequency trading, derivative pricing, and risk management. The 385 and 395 accelerator cards are available now.
Altera has released a SDK for OpenCL and supported third-party production boards. The SDK for OpenCL enables software programmers to access the high-performance capabilities of programmable logic devices. The Altera SDK for OpenCL is currently available for download. The annual software subscription for the SDK for OpenCL is $995 for a node-locked PC license.
Altera released a software development kit for Open Computing Language. The tool is the FPGA industry’s first SDK for OpenCL. It combines the massively parallel architecture of a FPGA with the OpenCL parallel programming model. The Altera SDK for OpenCL is production ready and is available through the company’s early access program.
Engineers can get an early look at Altera’s OpenCL (Open Computing Language) for FPGA solution through the FPGAs Early Access Program (EAP). As part of the EAP, designers can preview Altera’s OpenCL solution and receive access to an OpenCL for FPGA training course, collateral and technical demonstrations. The open computing standard simplifies FPGA development by enabling teams to design systems and algorithms in a high-level C-based framework when targeting FPGAs.
