Prior to 1997, each algorithm or solution accelerated by Field-Programmable Gate Arrays (FPGAs) — designed to be configured by a customer or a designer after manufacturing (hence, “field-programmable”) — required the building of dedicated hardware.

 

In 1997 Gidel developed simple, easy-to-use software tools for using generic FPGA boards to accelerate diverse types of algorithms in an optimized manner. Gidel also saw how software engineers could use FPGAs to accelerate their software and realized that FPGAs would provide the next wave of acceleration.

Gidel is a technology leader in high performance accelerators utilizing FPGAs.

With this project-level approach in mind and a goal of making FPGAs easy to use, Gidel created powerful and advanced tools for high performance system development. In 1998 Gidel began providing its in-house test systems, and has been continuously developing innovative FPGA-based reconfigurable systems and development tools for diverse applications ever since.
