Over 25 Years of Innovation & Design

From DSP board supplier to premier FPGA board platform vendor, BittWare has consistently provided proven & trusted hardware across a variety of industries and applications.

Even as the leading edge has moved out significantly in the past 25 years, BittWare has continued to successfully deliver compelling, proven hardware and software to markets as wide ranging as Instrumentation, Military/Aerospace/Government (MAG), Broadcast, Financial and Compute & Storage.

Initially focused on DSP products for signal processing and now leveraging high-end FPGA technology to address networking, packet processing, storage, and acceleration applications – BittWare’s solutions have enabled thousands of customers to focus on their unique value-add rather than “reinventing the wheel”, enabling quicker time-to-deployment with less risk.

“BittWare’s products have increased performance three to five orders of magnitude over the past 25 years. BittWare’s first boards provided 75 MFLOPS of processing with 16 MBytes of memory and 100 MBytes/sec of bandwidth. The company now produces boards that deliver several TFLOPS of processing with 64 GBytes of memory and 150 GBytes/sec of bandwidth.”

Incorporated in 1989, BittWare introduced their first high-performance DSP-based board for ISA bus in 1991 and also created the DSP21k Toolkit, establishing the de facto industry standard for Analog Devices’ floating-point DSP board host interface libraries.  Over the course of the next twelve years, BittWare released over forty board products based on Analog Devices’ floating-point DSPs covering a variety of technologies and form factors, making BittWare a premier worldwide solution partner for ADI.

In 2004, BittWare began a partnership with Altera Corporation to design exclusively with Altera’s FPGA technology, releasing their first Altera FPGA-based board into the market in that same year.  Since that time, BittWare has released more than twenty-five FPGA platform products based on Altera’s high-density FPGA technology including the Arria 10, Arria V, Stratix V, Stratix IV GX, and Stratix II GX and covering multiple form factors including PCIe, VPX, AMC, and FMC.
