For two decades, BittWare Inc. has been the leading designer and manufacturer of ruggedizable and commercial, FPGA-computing and hybrid (FPGA+DSP) digital signal processing board-level solutions based on the Altera® Stratix® FPGA technology and Analog Devices’ TigerSHARC® technology.
Needs are addressed from prototype-to-production and span a variety of platforms, including AdvancedMC, VPX, VME, CompactPCI, PMC, PCI, and standalone.
The BittWare Anemone co-processor, featuring the Epiphany architecture from Adapteva, enables the best assets of traditional floating point DSPs and FPGAs to be combined, thereby offering a completely new approach to floating point digital signal processing.
BittWare’s S5-PCIe-DS (S5PE-DS) is a PCIe x16 format COTS card featuring two high-bandwidth, power-efficient Altera Stratix V GX or GS FPGAs. Designed for high-end applications, the Stratix V provides a high level of system integration and flexibility for I/O, routing, and processing. The S5PE-DS is a flexible and efficient solution for high-performance network processing, signal processing, and data acquisition. Combining it with BittWare’s Anemone co-processor and ATLANTiS FrameWork enhances productivity and portability and allows even greater processing efficiency. The board provides up to 64 GBytes of DDR3 SDRAM as well as options for RLDRAM3 and QDRII+. Providing additional flexibility are 4 front-panel QSFP+ cages, allowing 4 40GigE interfaces (or 16 10GigE), direct to the FPGAs for reduced latency, making it ideal for high frequency trading and networking applications.
The BittWare S5-PCIe-HQ (S5PHQ) is a half-length PCIe x8 card based on the high-bandwidth, power-efficient Altera Stratix V GX or GS FPGA. The S5-PCIe-HQ also features dual QSFP+, dual SFP+, DDR3, and QDRII+ memory. Designed for high-end applications, the Stratix V provides a high level of system integration and flexibility for I/O, routing, and processing. The S5PHQ is a versatile and efficient solution for high-performance network processing, signal processing, data acquisition and financial trading applications.
Altera Stratix® V GX/GS FPGA PCIe board with up to two VITA 57 FMC I/O Sites, DDR3 memory and dual QSFP+. The BittWare S5PE is the industry's first Altera Stratix® V FPGA-based COTS board and is optimised for high performance computing, telecommunications test equipment and automated high speed financial trading applications.
Based on the Altera Stratix V FPGA, BittWare’s S5-XMC (S5XM) is a single-width XMC board, designed to provide powerful FPGA processing and high-speed serial I/O capabilities to VME, VXS, VPX, cPCI, AdvancedTCA or PCI Express carrier boards. Developed for high-end applications, the Altera Stratix V FPGA provides a high level of system integration and flexibility for I/O, routing, and processing. Combining it with BittWare’s Anemone co-processor and ATLANTiS FrameWork enhances productivity and portability and allows even greater processing efficiency. Sixteen multi-gigabit serial lanes supporting PCI Express, Serial RapidIO and 10 GigE are available via the board’s rear panel as well as 102 general purpose digital I/O signals (51 differential). On-board memory includes DDR3 and QDRII/II+. Applications include signal intelligence, electro-optic and radar signal processing for UAVs and fast jets.
