FPGA Board Support Packages Simplify App Dev

BittWare recently announced the availability of Arria 10 FPGA Board Support Packages (BSPs) for Altera’s OpenCL SDK 16.0.2. With BittWare’s OpenCL BSPs, you can start developing applications for Altera’s Arria 10 1150GX FPGA using OpenCL.

Using OpenCL, you can code your systems and algorithms in a high-level C-based framework and directly create FPGA programming files from a pure software development flow. The applications are endless, from use in data centers to defense/aerospace systems.

BittWare ‘s Arria 10 BSPs are well suited for acceleration applications such as machine learning. The High Performance Computing (HPC) BSP is the traditional OpenCL model, using a host that moves data to the accelerator system over PCI Express (PCIe). The BSP platform is the standard platform for OpenCL accelerators. In addition, BittWare can provide custom BSPs specifically tailored to your requirements.

BittWare offers an OpenCL Developer’s Bundle comprising a low-profile Arria 10 1150GX FPGA-based PCIe board, BittWorks Lite II software tools, Altera’s OpenCL SDK, and Altera’s Quartus II. You can also get the Developer’s Bundle with a Stratix V board.

The Arria 10 OpenCL Bundle and BSP are currently available. Contact BittWare for pricing.
