Chapter Three

Dataflow Computing in Extreme Performance Conditions

Diego Oriato; Stephen Girdlestone; Oskar Mencer    Maxeler Technologies, London, United Kingdom

Abstract

Reconfigurable computers, generally based on field programmable gate array technology, have been used successfully as a platform for performance critical applications in a variety of industries. Applications targeted at reconfigurable computers can exploit their fine-grained parallelism, predictable low latency performance and very high data throughput per watt. Traditional techniques for designing configurations are, however, generally considered time consuming and cumbersome and this has limited commercial reconfigurable computer usage. To solve this problem, Maxeler ...
