Mitrionics and GiDEL Announce Joint Reseller Partnership for FPGA-Based Accelerated Computing Development Tools & PCI Cards

Successful Technology Integration and Collaboration Led to Business Partnership

PORTLAND, OR--(Marketwire - November 16, 2009) - SUPERCOMPUTING 2009, SC09 Booth #1006 -- Mitrionics, Inc., the technology leader in FPGA-based hybrid computing, today announced it has signed a joint reseller agreement with GiDEL Ltd., a leading supplier of FPGA-based accelerated computing systems and cards, whereby both companies will resell each other's FPGA-based accelerated computing hardware and software. The companies began working together collaboratively to integrate their technologies in early 2009 on a research project with the University of Florida. The successful integration of their products led to this mutually beneficial business partnership. Products from both companies are available immediately.

Under the agreement, GiDEL will resell the Mitrion Accelerated Computing Platform consisting of the Mitrion Software Development Kit and Mitrion Virtual Processor. The first two GiDEL cards supported and sold by Mitrionics are the PROCStar III™ PCIe x8 Computational Accelerator Card and PROCe III™ PCIe x4 Computational Accelerator Card. Mitrionics will support and sell additional GiDEL cards in the future. The products are available immediately from both companies.

"GiDEL is excited to partner with Mitrionics in this new business relationship, and we look forward to further collaborations with them regarding our respective technologies," commented Reuven Weintraub, GiDEL President and CTO. "The GiDEL and Mitrionics accelerated computing solution will combine two proven industry most powerful products enables developers and researchers to increase application performance and reduce electrical power and costs."

"Mitrionics and GiDEL have already established a successful technology collaboration between our companies and products through our work on the NSF research project for the Novo-G 96-FPGA supercomputer at the University of Florida," said Robert Wall, director of business development for Mitrionics, Inc. "We are now looking forward to a strong and mutually beneficial business relationship that will bring value and increase market adoption of accelerated computing platforms and solutions."

The Mitrion Accelerated Computing Platform is designed to provide researchers and developers with the latest parallel programming tools for FPGAs that do not require any hardware design knowledge or experience. The Mitrion Platform enables rapid development of new accelerated applications in bioinformatics, computer-aided design, data mining, financial services, government/defense, and oil and gas industries. Systems running applications accelerated using the Mitrion Platform generally perform 20x to 100x faster than traditional systems while decreasing electrical power requirements by ninety percent.

Mitrion SDK 2.0 - Accelerated Computing Platform

The Mitrion SDK is a complete development environment for accelerating applications while making it easy for programmers to learn how to write software using parallel programming techniques that take advantage of the parallel processing capabilities of the Mitrion Virtual Processor. The SDK includes the Mitrion-C parallel programming language, a compiler, and graphical code-simulator to identify programming errors, performance bottlenecks, and inefficient code. Mitrionics offers a free SDK Personal Edition that supports Linux/UNIX, Windows and Mac OS X which can be downloaded from:
