ACCELIZE line of programmable network/compute adapter cards are provided with a software and firmware infrastructure allowing customers to concentrate on their value add, allowing them to create highly differentiated solutions faster. ACCELIZE customers include some of the largest banks, hedge funds, and exchanges in the world as well as a myriad of smaller but leading edge prop shops.
PLDA designs and sells highly differentiated semiconductor Intellectual Property cores (IP) for SoC and FPGA Integrated Circuits (IC), aimed at reducing IC design cycles and associated risks, ultimately improving time-to-market for our customers. PLDA is focused since day one on the PCI communication protocol and its evolutions and offers a broad range of leading edge PCI, PCI-X, and PCI Express controller IP cores. PLDA IP cores are deployed inside millions of ICs around the globe, enabling applications in numerous markets including medical, mil-aero, telecom, HPC, networking, consumer, and many more. PLDA products benefit from a global support and sales organization along with a strong partner ecosystem, enabling thousands of customers to successfully design highly differentiated products. PLDA has entities in North America (PLDA, Inc. in San Jose, California) and in Europe (PLDA SAS in Aix en Provence, France, PLDA Italia in Rome, Italy, PLDA Bulgaria in Sofia, Bulgaria).
QuickPlay is a PLDA GROUP brand that aims to accelerate the adoption of FPGA based reconfigurable hardware in IT infrastructures by opening up FPGA design to non hardware experts. The QuickPlay software IDE enables developers with different engineering backgrounds to model, design, debug, and deploy FPGA hardware as their end product or as a part of their final system, all without FPGA expertise, and without the pain and time traditionally associated with FPGA design. QuickPlay features a pure C/C++ design methodology that abstracts the hardware design and debug process, streamlines the mapping of the FPGA design on the hardware target, and completely hides the details of hardware implementation, for a user experience that compares with traditional software programming. QuickPlay is the result of years of research in the field of High-Level Design (HLD) and High-Level Synthesis (HLS) combined with PLDA GROUP strong expertise in FPGA hardware and IP design. QuickPlay enables leading technology companies to rip the benefits of FPGA without the pain, in domains such as Cloud computing, HPC, A/V broadcast, data center networking and more.
