FRANKFURT, Germany, June 16 — Gidel, a technology leader in high-performance accelerators utilizing FPGAs, unveils its new line of low-profile PCIex8 HawkEye family based on Altera’s (now part of Intel) Arria 10 FPGAs. The HawkEye family joins the Gidel Proc10A high-performance accelerators offering a full range of Arria 10 capabilities enabling tailored optimization to budget and performance needs.
The HawkEye presents an unprecedented cost-performance solution providing high-end FPGA capabilities previously considered beyond the budget of many applications. The PCIe/stand-alone HawkEye family opens the way for acceleration of diverse applications that can immensely benefit from the Arria 10’s powerful capabilities.
“FPGA deployment in high-performance, low-power application is ramping up steeply,” said Reuven Weintraub, Founder and CTO of Gidel, “We are thrilled to extend the FPGA usage possibilities by providing this high-performance and low-power solution at commercially affordable price.”
The HawkEye key features:
- Arria10 FPGA, 160 or 480
- PCIe (low-profile) or stand-alone
- Up to 18 GB on-board DDR4 memory
- Up to 4 SFP+ supporting 1-14.1 Gbps/port
- High reliability: MTBF > Million hours
- Starting at price < $1000
- Dedicated features for vertical markets such as network security and HFT
To optimize the development process Gidel offers two development methodologies:
- OpenCL based on Altera SDK
- Gidel Proc Developer’s kit enabling:
- Acceleration of multi-applications/process simultaneously
- Unmatched HDL design productivity
