Nallatech announced their latest addition to their FPGA accelerator card product line today.  The new addition bumps bus support to 8-lane PCI Express 2.0.  The new bus support increases host bandwidth to 5GB/s peak.  The card includes a Xilinx Virtex-5 FPGA with two banks of QDR-II SRAM for 8GB/s of random access memory.  Two banks of DDR2 SDRAM provides up to 4GB/s of higher capacity user memory.

Market demand for FPGA-attached server and blade platforms is growing rapidly as customers begin to deploy hybrid computing platforms in greater volumes,” says Craig Petrie, product manager at Nallatech. “Sustained host bandwidth performance is a critical parameter for many customer applications.”

The PCIe-280 is compatible with high-density server and blade centre platforms from OEMs such as Cray, Dell, HP, IBM, SGI, and Supermicro.  For more info, read their full release here.
