SciEngines Products and Services
Reconfigurable High-Performance Computing Solutions
SciEngines is a young innovation-driven company located in Kiel, Germany. The company was established in 2007 on the vision that we can satisfy the computational needs in science and engineering.
To do so, SciEngines offers a number of reconfigurable computing (RC) products, ranging from PCI express accelerator cards with 4-8 chips to large-scale FPGA clusters with dozens, hundreds or thousands of FPGAs for high performance computing (HPC) applications. Our architectures provide a maximum in computing ressources, and adjustments can be made to emphasize raw processing power, data-throughput or memory.
Our current flagship products in the area of reconfigurable HPC are:
formica - 8 to 32 Spartan-6 LX150(T) USB-connected accelerator module
COPACOBANA - 120 Spartan-3 1000 or Virtex-4 SX35 FPGA computer
RIVYERA - 8 to 256 Spartan-3 5000, Spartan-6 LX150 or Virtex-6 LX550 FPGA cluster
These products greatly accelerate computation in a variety of fields, including biosciences, cryptography, engineering, financial mathematics, image & signal processing, simulations in physics or logistics, etc. while helping to save money due to an energy efficiency that is 100 times better than what competitive technologies offer.
Should you have specific hardware requirements that aren't fulfilled by our standard, commercial off the shelf (COTS) products, please let us know and we will be happy to provide our custom hardware design services. In case that you are interested in some specific algorithm that is not yet ported to our machines, we are also happy to provide algorithm optimization as well as implementation support. Please refer to our products, solutions and services pages, or contact us by
