LONDON Nallatech has signed an agreement with Intel to develop socket-based accelerator modules which support the Intel QuickAssist Technology accelerator strategy.
Nallatech (Glasgow, Scotland) is working with Intel (Santa Clara, CA) and Xilinx (San Jose, CA) to develop and deliver FSB FPGA accelerator modules and design tools to the advanced server market during 2007. These products are compatible with Intel’s latest server platforms and utilize Xilinx’s 65nm Virtex-5 FPGA architecture.
As part of this relationship, Nallatech will deliver high level design tools conforming to the Intel QuickAssist Technology Accelerator Abstraction Layer (AAL) enabling support for ANSI C based third party tool flows from both existing and new partners.
Craig Anderson, CEO of Nallatech, said, “The flexibility and performance of FPGAs coupled with high speed direct access to the server processors allows users to significantly accelerate the performance of computationally intensive algorithms, thus reducing compute time and power consumption.”
“Nallatech has extensive experience in building products that utilize FPGAs as accelerators and we are delighted to join with this industry innovator in developing solutions for Intel’s industry-leading acceleration platforms,” said Dr. Dileep Bhandarkar, director of advanced architectures for Intel.
