Reflex CES (Custom Embedded Systems) introduced the Aurora-like IP core. It is based on Altera FPGA devices. The Reflex CES IP core enables interoperability between Xilinx Virtex-6 LXT and Altera Stratix IV and Stratix V GX FPGAs. The Reflex CES Aurora-like 8B/10B IP Core is available now with VHDL source code, test-benches, a reference design and user guide. Reflex CES plans to ship an Aurora-like IP Core that supports communication between FPGAs with a 64B/66B protocol at 10 Gbps.
PLDA introduced their QuickUDP, which is a 10Gb UDP Hardware stack IP core for FPGA devices. The QuickUDP IP solution is a 100% RTL-designed IP, compliant with the IEEE802.3 specification and supports the ARP, IPv4, ICMP, IGMP, and UDP protocols. The PLDA QuickUDP 10G UDP Hardware Stack IP is available now from PLDA. The PLDA QuickUDP can be integrated into Altera-based and Xilinx-based FPGA designs.
The Center for High-Performance Reconfigurable Computing (CHREC) updated their Novo-G supercomputer with Altera Stratix IV FPGA devices. As a result, CHREC increased the system memory and acceleration of the world’s most powerful supercomputer by a factor of two. CHREC was able to realize a greater performance-to-cost ratio with modest increases in size, power and cooling.
XtremeData’s dbX family of database appliances is designed for the unconstrained analysis and exploration of large databases. The dbX appliance is a fully-integrated platform incorporating all of the components of an analysis system: storage, computing, interconnect network, and database engine. The patented XtremeData computing module features SQL-in-Silicon hardware acceleration using a Stratix IV FPGA from Altera. The in-system programmability of Stratix IV FPGAs offers a versatile platform for the implementation of custom processing engines.
