Many of todaypsilas software-to-hardware compiler projects try to find dataflow parallelism in a sequential program description and use it to generate parallel running hardware components. In this paper we present a new possibility to do a parallel description based on the combination of object-oriented programming and dynamically partial reconfiguration.(More)
Readout controller The readout controller (ROC) is an FPGA-based board, developed at the Kirchhoff Institute for Physics (KIP), University of Heidelberg, for configuration and reading out data from nXYTER chips [1]. Basic readout features of ROC are implemented in VHDL. For high-level function-ality (configuration, control, data transport to host PC) a(More)
Although both DPR (dynamic partial reconfiguration) and HLS (high level synthesis) are important future trends regarding hardware design, they develop quite independently. Today's software-to-hardware compilers focus on conventional hardware and therefore have to remove dynamic aspects such as the instantiation of calculating modules at runtime. On the(More)
The Active Buffer project is part of the CBM (compressed baryonic matter) experiment and takes advantage of the DPR (dynamic partial reconfiguration) technology, in which a dynamic module can be reconfigured while the static part and other dynamic modules keep running untouched. Due to DPR, design flexibility and simplicity are achieved at the same time.(More)
Since 2007 our contribution focused the Silicon Tracker's FEE (Front End Electronic), consisting of the nXYTER, an ADC (Analog Digital Converter) and a ROC (Read Out Controller). Since 2009 we are also designing and implementing readout logic for the GET4 chip [1] and the TRD FEE. To keep the re-usability as high as possible, we split the ROC into two fully(More)
From 11.07.10 to 16.07.10, the Dagstuhl Seminar 10281 " Dynamically Reconfigurable Architectures " was held in Schloss Dagstuhl – Leibniz Center for Informatics. During the seminar, several participants presented their current research, and ongoing work and open problems were discussed. Abstracts of the presentations given during the seminar as well as(More)
