CONCORD, NH - April 10, 2012 - BittWare a provider of fully-validated, deployable Altera-based COTS FPGA and signal processing boards, announced major improvements to the PCIe (PCI Express) microsite section of its website. PCI Express (Peripheral Component Interconnect Express), officially abbreviated as PCIe, is a computer expansion card standard designed to replace the older PCI, PCI-X, and AGP bus standards. The standard is ideal for financial acceleration applications such as high frequency trading and communications applications such as network/server system deployment. The company’s revamped microsite makes it easier for developers to find leading FPGA-based PCIe board solutions as well as to reach out to BittWare’s technical experts for help with PCI Express / FPGA board design issues.
“PCI Express is a standard that can be used across a variety of applications,” said Darren Taylor, Senior Vice President of Worldwide Sales & Marketing at BittWare. “Our PCIe boards not only support the PCI Express form factor but are built upon the industry-leading Altera Stratix FPGA technology. This makes BittWare the obvious choice for any engineer or designer looking for ‘PCIe FPGA Boards’, ‘PCI Express Altera Stratix Boards’ or even ‘Best FPGA Boards supporting PCIe’. We wanted to make our website very user-friendly for anyone researching PCI express and/or FPGAs as well as the Altera FPGA families that we support.”
PCIe is the evolution of PCIbus card. PCIe boards are typically air-cooled only and heavily used for prototyping and development, but are also becoming popular for deployments in rack and blade servers.
BittWare’s PCIe boards are supported by our ATLANTiS FrameWork (AFW) which promotes design and FPGA code re-use while reducing risk, trimming development time, and significantly cutting program costs. The boards are also supported by BittWorks, BittWare’s mature and robust software tools providing complete hardware and FPGA interfaces, enabling developers to be up and running on BittWare hardware in minutes.
BittWare’s PCIe boards include the S5-PCIe-HQ, an Altera Stratix® V GX/GS Half-Length PCIe Board with Dual QSFP+, Dual SFP+, DDR3, and QDRII+; our S5-PCIe-HR, an Altera Stratix® V GX/GS Half-Length PCIe Board with Dual QSFP+, Dual SFP+, DDR3, and RLDRAM3; our S5-PCIe, an Altera Stratix® V GX/GS PCIe Board with VITA 57 FMC I/O Site or Dual QSFP+; our AAFM/S5-PCIe, an Altera Stratix® V GX/GS PCIe Board with Altera Stratix® V GX/GS PCIe Board with up to Eight Anemone104 FPGA Co-Processors; along with a variety of high-speed data conversion options for the S5-PCIe.
About BittWare, Inc.
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 leverage the latest FPGA technology from Altera and our Anemone FPGA co-processing chip which reduces FPGA power and complexity by hosting C language aspects of a signal processing application. BittWare’s solutions are based upon industry standard COTS form factors including PCIe, AMC, VPX / OpenVPX, VME / VXS, CompactPCI, PCI, XMC, FMC (VITA 57), and PMC. When power and space-constrained challenges make it difficult to use industry-standard boards, BittWare can provide modified solutions, licensed designs, and/or chip-level products for applications in the military/aerospace, high end instrumentation and telecommunications infrastructure markets.
