Nallatech Provides FPGAs for NextCom's Rugged Mobile Computing Systems

7/22/2005 - Nallatech, the world’s leading supplier of FPGA high-performance computing solutions, announced a partnership with NextCom, provider of extreme performance, ruggedised mobile computing products. In the agreement, Nallatech becomes a Gold Partner, providing its FPGA (Field Programmable Gate Array) hardware solutions to NextCom’s rugged mobile computing systems, and NextCom joins Nallatech’s rapidly expanding Channel Partner Programme.

The fast growth of Nallatech’s Channel Partner Programme follows closely its 2004 growth, in which the company increased its revenues by 80%, with a 120% increase in bookings in North America alone.

“This partnership with Nallatech brings out the best in both companies to benefit our customers,” said Robert Labadini, president of NextCom. “We are looking forward to being able to provide the enhanced performance of FPGA technology to our mobile computing customers in the military, seismic exploration, and medical industries.”

“Our partnership with NextCom, one of the growing forces in high-performance mobile computing products, is a unique opportunity to show the true capability of FPGA computing in a mobile setting,” said Ed Hennessy, VP North American Operations. “NextCom’s higher power systems get the most out of Nallatech’s FPGA technology. Furthermore, users of high-powered mobile computing are being introduced to the enhanced performance capabilities which FPGAs offer.”

Nallatech’s BenNUEY-PCI 3-slot motherboard and BenBLUE-II Dual Virtex-II module are currently being used in NextCom’s FlexPCServer. The result is a ruggedised, expandable distributed computing platform designed for use in military, seismic exploration, and medical applications.
