about page header About Gidel Gidel is a multi-national company founded in 1993 for
high-end systems development and integration

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 for more than 25 years.

Today Gidel’s solutions can be found in markets such as Security, DNA Research, Machine Learning, Imaging, and Vision. Gidel’s reconfigurable platforms and development tools are used for optimal application tailoring, reducing the time and cost of project development. And Gidel’s dedicated support and product performance, advanced development tools, ease-of-use, and long life cycles have been well appreciated by satisfied customers who continuously use these products, generation after generation.
