Dell and Nallatech: OpenCL Integrated Platforms with FPGA PCIe Accelerators

Dell Technology Partner

Nallatech provides a family of FPGA PCIe Hardware Accelerators fully configurable using OpenCL. This software based programming model has democratized the use of the FPGA technology and multiplied the opportunities to deploy FPGA compute across the datacenter. FPGA experts, as well as newcomers, can now develop and deploy their FPGA based products in record times.

Dell Technology Partner - Integrated 510T or 385A
  • Software programming flow

  • Compute intensive

  • Low power

  • Production ready

The need for FPGA compute across multiple markets has become more apparent in recent years. Various industries have used the FPGA technology over the last two decades, but the generalization of high level programming tools, like Intel OpenCL SDK, as well as low level improvements of the FPGA architecture, like hardened Floating Point fabric, have democratized and opened new doors for FPGA technology. Leading the trend, Nallatech is providing solutions to facilitate the integration of FPGA compute in the datacenter and the transition from prototyping to production.

Dell Technology Partner - Certified 510T and 385A integration available to Dell servers
When integrated into a Dell server, the Nallatech FPGA Accelerator is an efficient, proven and reliable production-ready solution.

• Customize the platform to your requirements
• FPGA Accelerator pre-integrated and tested

OpenCL Support
Nallatech’s partnership with Intel now enables FPGA experts as well as programmers with little or no knowledge of FPGA technologies to target Nallatech FPGA Accelerators within an Industry Standard High Level Programming Language: OpenCL.

The Intel Software Development Kit (SDK) for OpenCL combined with Nallatech’s highly optimized Board Support Packages (or OpenCL BSPs) provides a fully integrated software package to program the FPGA fabric.

The OpenCL BSP provides FPGA compilation optimized support files and runtime support files (PCIe driver, software utilities, etc.).

The Dell Technology Partner Program
Nallatech is a Dell Technology Partner. The 385A and 510T FPGA OpenCL Accelerators are certified by Dell to run on Dell platforms that are specified in the above technical overview.

The Dell Technology Partner Program is a multi-tier program that includes ISVs, IHVs and Solution Providers. This global program helps partners build innovative and competitive business solutions using Dell platforms. Program resources keep customer costs low and helps to sustain competitiveness.

The program has a structured and streamlined process that combines technology and business strategies with Dell Solution Center expertise to onboard and test partner products on Dell platforms. This testing process helps ensure that products have met the technical requirements to perform well on Dell platforms.
