Allan Cantle, CEO of Nallatech. He continued, “During the past year we have booked our two largest contracts to date, together totalling approximately $3million.”

Nallatech recently joined several partners, including Xilinx and Scottish Enterprise, to launch the FPGA High Performance Computing Alliance (FHPCA), with the objective of advancing the development and adoption of FPGA-based high-performance computers.

Earlier in the year, as part of its continuing strategic relationship with Xilinx, Nallatech designed and delivered the Virtex-4 XtremeDSP Development Kit.

Nallatech also established offices in the Baltimore, Phoenix, Philadelphia and Boston areas.
