BittWare supports Altera's SDK for OpenCL on the S5-PCIe-HQ board

BittWare has announced support for Altera's SDK for OpenCL on the S5-PCIe-HQ (S5PH-Q) board. The S5PH-Q is a half-length PCIe Gen3 x8 card based on Altera's high-performance 28-nm Stratix V FPGAs. Future releases of Altera's SDK for OpenCL will support the S5PH-Q as a platform for OpenCL development and demonstration. The S5PH-Q is the first board in BittWare's S5 family of products designed to support Altera's SDK for OpenCL.

"The S5PH-Q board features a flexible and versatile architecture, which, when coupled with OpenCL, dramatically simplifies FPGA development by enabling designers to code their systems and algorithms in a high-level C-based framework," stated Ron Huizen, BittWare Vice President of Technology. "This gives developers access to the latest generation of high-performance FPGAs on a validated COTS PCI Express board, while also providing them the opportunity to significantly reduce their time-to-market by making use of OpenCL kernels to target Altera FPGAs."

BittWare's press release comes on the heels of Altera's OpenCL announcement today: "Altera Announces Industry's First FPGA Support for OpenCL - Eases the Adoption of FPGAs for Accelerating Heterogeneous Systems".
