The use of FPGAs for general-purpose supercomputing is being investigated by several projects worldwide. The FPGA High Performance Computing Alliance (FHPCA) is developing HPC solutions for real-world applications using FPGAs. It has built a 64-FPGA supercomputer located in Scotland.The widespread take-up of FPGAs will only occur when they are more easily(More)
In October of 1997, a year-long collaborative project was started between Hitachi Europe Limited (HEL) and the Edinburgh Parallel Computing Centre (EPCC) at the University of Edinburgh. This project had the goal of producing an environment whereby Java programs may be executed on the Hitachi SR2201 distributed memory multi-processor machine. The two key(More)
The CRESTA project is one of three complementary exascale software projects funded by the European Commission. The three-year project is employing a novel approach to exascale system co-design which focuses on the use of a small, representative set of applications to inform and guide software and systemware developments. This methodology is designed to(More)
