Mitrionics and Nallatech Demonstrate FPGA Accelerator Kit and Announce Membership in Intel’s Quick Assist Technology Community at Intel Developer Forum
Intel Developer Forum, San Francisco, August 2008 – Mitrionics, Inc., developer of the Mitrion™ Virtual Processor and the Mitrion Software Acceleration Platform, and Nallatech will demonstrate their PCI Express* FPGA (Field Programmable Gate Array) Accelerator Kit at the Intel Developer Forum being held August 19-21, 2008 in San Francisco, CA. The FPGA Accelerator Kit is targeted at companies and organizations in defense, High Performance Computing (HPC), and bioinformatics sectors interested in accelerating applications with the use of Commercial Off The Shelf (COTS) products. The hardware portion of the kit is comprised of an 8-lane PCI Express card featuring a Xilinx FPGA that is directly coupled to multiple independent banks of SDRAM and SRAM memory. The Mitrion Virtual Processor (MVP) and Mitrion Software Acceleration Platform provide the co-processor and rapid development platform for companies to accelerate application software. Mitrionics and Nallatech will be located in the Intel® QuickAssist Technology Community booth #131.
“The FPGA Accelerator Kit is a simple choice for companies or organizations wanting to create low cost accelerated applications,” said Mike Calise, executive vice president and general manager of Mitrionics, Inc. “We are proud to be a member of the Intel QuickAssist Technology Community with the mission to provide easy accelerator deployment. Intel QuickAssist Technology is providing the architectural platform that will enable FPGA acceleration within a hybrid computing environment to become mainstream through industry standard servers and desktops.”
“The improved host bandwidth offered by our new PCI Express card coupled with Mitrionics’ comprehensive high-level tool flow will provide our customers with the ideal platform for FPGA acceleration,” said Craig Petrie, Product Manager of Nallatech. “Our industry standard PCI Express FPGA card is compatible with platforms from leading vendors such as HP, IBM and Dell, and is one of the first COTS FPGA products to support the Intel QuickAssist Technology Accelerator Abstraction Layer (AAL).
“The Intel QuickAssist Technology Community (QATC) is a community of users and ecosystem vendors – hardware and software – committed to simplifying the use of accelerators via industry technologies on Intel® architecture-based platforms,” said Dylan Larson, Director of Platform Technology Marketing, Intel Corporation. “We are pleased to see technology leaders such as Mitrionics and Nallatech joining us in this effort,”
