Medical Research Acceleration

The P Series FPGA Accelerator cards are an excellent way to speed up a variety of medical research algorithms. Due the nature of the FPGA architecture, parallel processing is possible which can lead to performance enhancements in algorithms of one to two orders of magnitude. In addition, since many medical algorithms are based on small word sizes, FPGAs are better equipped to handle these algorithms than are fixed-width processors.

Other advantages of the P series are the flexibility and conveniences it provides. Reference designs and a library of cores are provided to get your project completed on schedule. FGPA bitstream files are stored on a miniSD card and are loaded on power-up. Encrypted bitstreams are supported. With three different versions of the P Series (P4/P6/P10), Faster Technology offers you a card that is customized to the scale of your application, yet gives you the flexibility to change your algorithm as the need arises.

Our Impulse CTM support and reference designs open up FPGA and hardware acceleration to a much wider audience. No longer do you have to be a VHDL expert to take advantage of the performance that FPGAs provide. Algorithms can be written and tested in C before migrating over to the P Series for speed optimization.
