What Is OpenCL?
Altera Preferred Board Partner Program for OpenCL
Third-party production boards are tested according to the strict requirements of the Altera Preferred Board Partner Program for OpenCL. Only preffered boards are optimized for the most current Altera device architectures and design software. Altera works closely with these selected partners to ensure that their boards continually meet these standards. Altera preferred boards are listed in the Development Kit section of the Altera’s website.
An Altera preferred board for OpenCL typically contains the following items:
Altera preferred boards for use with Altera’s SDK for OpenCL include:
|For over two decades, BittWare has designed and deployed high-end signal processing board-level solutions that significantly reduce technology risk and time-to-revenue for our OEM customers. Our solutions are based exclusively on Altera's Stratix® families of FPGA technology and implemented on standard commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) form factors, including PCI Express® (PCIe®), adaptive modulation and coding (AMC), VPX / OpenVPX, versa module Eurocard (VME) / VXS, XMC, FMC (VITA 57). When design challenges make it difficult to use industry standard boards, BittWare can provide modified solutions and/or licensed designs for applications in the financial, communications, instrumentation, military, and aerospace markets.
