Future computing workloads will emphasize an architecture's ability to perform relatively simple calculations on massive quantities of mixed-width data. This paper describes a novel reconfigurable fabric architecture, PipeRench, optimized to accelerate these types of computations. PipeRench enables fast, robust compilers, supports forward compatibility, and(More)
Reconfigurable hardware accelerators have been shown to be flexible and efficient in stream-based applications. In this paper, we discuss the design of PCI-PipeRench and the SWORDAPI. PCI-PipeRench is a coprocessor utilizing the PipeRench architecture which includes on-chip control and data buffering to interface with a host processor over a PCI bus.(More)
