Collaboration strengthens position in FPGA acceleration market
It has been announced by BittWare, a Molex company, and Nallatech that they have combined efforts to provide a portfolio of FPGA acceleration solutions. Both known within the industry for their wide breadth of in-house FPGA board, subsystem and software expertise, Molex acquired BittWare and Nallatech as an important part of its vision to provide customers with innovative electronic solutions.
Going forward under BittWare, a Molex company, the companies are unrivalled in the fast-growing FPGA acceleration market where Intel and Xilinx programmable devices are now essential for accelerating compute-intensive or latency-critical workloads, such as machine learning inference or real-time data analytics. The expertise Molex provides in high-speed datacom products and its global resources will help BittWare provide greater value to the FPGA industry.
“Over the last twenty-plus years we had come to respect Nallatech as a tough competitor who kept us on our toes,” said Jeff Milrod, President of BittWare. “To now be part of the same company, leading the market for FPGA acceleration is a genuine thrill and something that the whole organisation is excited about. With our skilled staff of FPGA veterans, unmatched product range and the enthusiastic support of Molex, we are well positioned to drive market growth.”
Craig Petrie, vice president of marketing at BittWare, stated: “As FPGA-based computing transitions from a niche technology to a dynamic growth market, it’s important that there is a supplier with the critical mass to enable adoption. Large enterprise customers have higher expectations for product qualification, validation and support compared to innovators and early adopters. BittWare is now a market leader, and growing quickly. The BittWare team is a talented group with a three-decade track record of success and a culture that is synergistic with Nallatech and Molex.”
