Altera to Demonstrate FPGA Technologies at Flash Memory Summit 2014 Altera Helps Accelerate Servers and Virtualize Storage and Memory in the Data Center

SAN JOSE, Calif., Aug. 4, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Altera Corporation (NASDAQ: ALTR) today announced it will demonstrate its programmable logic technology and present in multiple technology sessions at the Flash Memory Summit at the Santa Clara Convention Center, taking place August 5 to 7, 2014. Attendees can stop by the Altera booth #621 to learn more about using field programmable gate arrays (FPGAs) as accelerators in the data center and to enable storage and memory virtualization. Altera representatives will also offer tutorials on high performance flash applications over the three-day-long event.

Altera's portfolio of FPGA and SoC solutions for flash and emerging memory applications can be programmed to meet enterprise Big Data and analytics storage requirements. Arria® 10 SoCs are also the industry's only 20 nm devices that integrate a hardened ARM processor system into the FPGA fabric. Altera FPGAs and SoCs provide a parallel architecture that aids in the acceleration of processing algorithms, while the Altera SDK for OpenCL design tool offers easy implementations of parallel processing applications onto FPGAs.

Altera FPGAs provide high-performance, low-power alternatives with optimum flexibility for developing flash memory applications. Altera booth demos will show new ways to use FPGAs to enable:

  • Non-volatile DIMMs and memories
  • Large scale flash arrays
  • High speed, low latency IO interfaces and protocols
  • High speed, low latency NVMe solutions, the specification for accessing solid-state drives (SSD) attached through the PCI Express (PCIe) bus.
  • SSD controllers as part of a highly-configurable solution that can be targeted for different flash capacity and performance requirements

Altera partner, Everspin Technologies, will also demonstrate porting its ST-MRAM to Altera's Stratix® FPGA family showcasing high reliability and ultra low latency which offers customers the combined benefits of both Flash and DRAM – improved application performance, data security, system crash recovery time and SSD reliability.
