BittWare has introduced new card and server-level solutions featuring Intel Agilex FPGAs. The new BittWare IA-860m assists customers in alleviating memory-bound application workloads by employing up to 32GB of HBM2e in-package memory and 16-lanes of PCIe 5.0 (with CXL upgrade option).

The company also added new Intel Agilex I-Series FPGA-based products with the launch of the IA-440i and IA-640i accelerators, which support high-performance interfaces, incorporating 400G Ethernet and PCIe 5.0 (CXL option). These newest models complement its existing lineup of Intel Agilex F-Series products to include one of the most comprehensive portfolios of Intel Agilex FPGA-based products on the market. This announcement reinforces its commitment to managing the ever-increasing needs of high-performance compute, storage, network and sensor processing applications.

“BittWare is excited to apply Intel’s advanced technology to solve increasingly difficult application problems, quickly and at low risk,” said Craig Petrie, vice president, Sales and Marketing of BittWare. “Our longstanding collaboration with Intel, expertise with the latest development tools, including OneAPI, as well as alignment with Molex’s global supply chain and manufacturing capabilities enable BittWare to reduce development time by 12-to-18 months while ensuring smooth transitions from proof-of-concept to volume product deployment.”

The company has been chosen to participate in Intel’s Agilex M-Series Early Access Program to speed the delivery of FPGA-based solutions offering Intel’s latest technology advancements.

“We are pleased to team with BittWare to scale Intel FPGA-based solutions while fueling momentum for our new Intel Agilex M-Series FPGAs,” said Deepali Trehan, vice president and general manager of Programmable Solutions, Intel Corporation. “Over the years, BittWare has been pivotal in supporting our flagship Intel Agilex product roadmap as well as leveraging Intel’s OneAPI development toolkit to speed the development and delivery of solutions that empower our customers to achieve the high levels of performance and power efficiency across end-markets and applications.”

The companies together are developing solutions to expedite the processing of varied workloads, ranging from machine learning inference, database acceleration and NVMe computational storage to networking test and measurement, 5G cellular testing and sensor processing. Consequently, organisations are poised to allow customers to keep pace with growing demands for high-speed networking, computing and storage acceleration for demanding applications and computational workloads.
