The Open Computing Language (OpenCL™) programming model is now supported on Altera’s Stratix® V FPGA architecture and BittWare’s Stratix V FPGA COTS hardware, providing an incredibly powerful solution for system acceleration. BittWare’s S5PH-Q board is optimized for the most current Altera device architectures and design software and is supported by Altera’s SDK for OpenCL. OpenCL dramatically simplifies FPGA development by enabling designers to code their systems and algorithms in a high-level C-based framework. This gives developers access to the latest generation of high-performance FPGAs on a validated PCIe board, while also significantly reducing their time-to-market by using OpenCL kernels to target Altera FPGAs.
BittWare is a preferred board supplier for Altera OpenCL, and Altera has certified the S5PH-Q to support the OpenCL SDK.
