A partnership described at Mitrionics and Nallatech Team Up On Accelerator Kit describes a new FPGA platform. They have ported a portion of NCBI BLAST-N to run on it–and the source is provided through the Mitrion-C Open Bio Project. You can utilize their SDK with a C Variant (Mitrion-C) to port your own application without needing to directly program the FPGA hardware. They also have a “personal edition” that you can use to prototype applications without access to any FPGA hardware.
Do you have experience with this or other FPGA platforms that provide a similarly abstracted API?
