The Hardware and Software

We currently use the following hardware (available in-house) and related software frameworks for our work:

  1. Maxeler Desktop Workstation, that uses the MaxJ language for programming FPGAs.
  2. Nallatech’s Altera-OpenCL compatible PCIe card P385-D5 – with Altera Stratix V D5 FPGA.
  3. Alpha-Data’s SDAccel (Xilinx’s OpenCL solution) compatible PCIe card ADM-PCIE-7V3, with Xilinx Virtex-7 FPGA.
  4. Gidel’s Proc-Star IV PCIe card with 4x Stratix IV FPGAs, programmed using RTL.
  5. Micron’s SC6-Mini, with a Xilinx UltraScale FPGA and a Micron Hybrid Memory Cube (HMC) device.
