Elektra Award 2014 Winner

The Elektra European Electronics Industry Awards are the most prestigious product, technology and business awards in Europe. Founded by Electronics Weekly in 2003, the Elektra Awards recognize the achievements of individuals and companies in the electronics industry. The awards are presented to companies whose products demonstrate advanced technical capabilities and usefulness. A panel of independent industry experts and representatives from Electronics Weekly selected the Altera SDK for OpenCL as the winner in its "Design Tools and Development Software" category.

Altera offers the industry's only OpenCL-conformant solution for FPGAs. The Altera SDK for OpenCL allows programmers to develop algorithms with the OpenCL language and harness the performance and power efficiencies of FPGAs. The Altera SDK for OpenCL includes a rapid prototyping design flow that allows OpenCL kernel code to be emulated, debugged, optimized, profiled and re-compiled to a hardware implementation in minutes. The re-compiled kernels can be tested and run on an FPGA immediately, saving programmers weeks of development time. Learn more about Altera's OpenCL solutions at www.altera.com/opencl.
