Introduction to Reconfigurable Supercomputing Paperback / softback
Part of the Synthesis Lectures on Computer Architecture series
This book covers technologies, applications, tools, languages, procedures, advantages, and disadvantages of reconfigurable supercomputing using Field Programmable Gate Arrays (FPGAs).
The target audience is the community of users of High Performance Computers (HPC) who may benefit from porting their applications into a reconfigurable environment.
As such, this book is intended to guide the HPC user through the many algorithmic considerations, hardware alternatives, usability issues, programming languages, and design tools that need to be understood before embarking on the creation of reconfigurable parallel codes.
We hope to show that FPGA acceleration, based on the exploitation of the data parallelism, pipelining and concurrency remains promising in view of the diminishing improvements in traditional processor and system design.
