    Internet applications, notably streaming video, demand extremely high communication speeds in core networks, currently 100 Gbps and moving toward 400 Gbps and beyond. Data packets must be processed at these rates, presenting serious challenges for traditional computing approaches. This article presents a tool chain that maps a domain-specific packet-processing language called PX to high-performanc... View full abstract»

    Businesses are experiencing a growing need for performing real-time analytics on ever-increasing enterprise data. While providing useful business insights and improved market responsiveness, analytics also adds a computational burden on traditional online transaction processing (OLTP) systems and could adversely affect the performance of OLTP workloads. The authors present a highly pipelined, high... View full abstract»

    Seismic migrations dominate about 90 percent of the computation cycles in the oil and gas industry. With the demand to handle high-density data and more complicated physics models, migration applications always call for more computing power, and they adopt new architectures quickly. Current multicore and many-core architectures have significantly improved the density of computational resources wit... View full abstract»

    High-level synthesis from OpenCL has shown significant potential, but current approaches conflict with mainstream OpenCL design methodologies owing to orders-of-magnitude longer field-programmable gate array compilation times and limited support for changing or adding kernels after system compilation. In this article, the authors introduce a back-end synthesis approach for potentially any OpenCL t... View full abstract»

    This article overviews how the rapid changes to field-programmable gate array (FPGA) devices have refocused operating systems research within reconfigurable computing. Where the goal was once to simply use existing operating systems, FPGA-based OS research may now be in the new position of helping define the look and feel of next-generation operating systems for evolving chip-heterogeneous multipr...

    The ReconOS operating system for reconfigurable computing offers a unified multithreaded programming model and OS services for threads executing in software and threads mapped to reconfigurable hardware. The OS interface lets hardware threads interact with software threads using well-known mechanisms such as semaphores, mutexes, condition variables, and message queues. By semantically integrating ...

    In 2003, the authors predicted that reconfigurable systems would emerge within 10 years. They expected the arrival of a "Holy Grail"' memory component and chip and wafer stacking. These advances did not occur, which meant that field-programmable gate arrays (the key enabler of reconfigurable systems) did not achieve the breakthrough advance that would enable them for mobile applications. Ten years... View full abstract»

    FPGAs are becoming more powerful computing devices as a result of increased logic capacity, inclusion of embedded processors and I/O controllers, and the rise of high-level programming-language-to-hardware compilers. However, accelerating computing applications on FPGAs is still challenging, partly due to the need for low-level hardware design of a system-level interconnect to integrate the applic...
