From Hardware Description Languages to Accelerator Design LanguagesWe need to make it easier to design custom, application-specific hardware accelerators. The potential efficiency gains are enormous, and the cost of deploying accelerators is falling rapidly with the widespread availability of FPGA cards and the increasing...
Languages, Tools, and Techniques for Accelerator Design
FPGA-based accelerators have opened up a new frontier for accelerator design; instead of spending months building and fabricating silicon chips, programmers can buy a cloud instance to run custom hardware accelerators within hours. With the remarkable new hardware, there is a need for remarkable new software.
