Implementing FPGA Design with the OpenCL Standard

Altera has released a white paper on implementing FPGA design with OpenCL. Utilizing the Khronos Group’s OpenCL standard on an FPGA may offer significantly higher performance and at much lower power than is available today from hardware architectures such as CPUs, graphics processing units (GPUs), and digital signal processing (DSP) units. In addition, an FPGA-based heterogeneous system (CPU + FPGA) using the OpenCL standard has a significant time-to-market advantage compared to traditional FPGA development using lower level hardware description languages (HDLs) such as Verilog or VHDL.

Altera’s OpenCL for FPGAs program delivers dramatic reductions in development times

Altera Corporation announced that goHDR achieved a significant reduction in development time and a dramatic increase in performance leveraging Altera's OpenCL for FPGAs. Working closely with Altera, goHDR ported its proprietary C-code to the OpenCL standard and implemented the code in an FPGA in less than a week - a process that typically requires 3-6 months using a traditional HDL flow.
