We present the initial results from the FHPCA Supercomputer project at the University of Edinburgh. The project has successfully built a general-purpose 64 FPGA computer and ported to it three demonstration applications from the oil, medical and finance sectors. This paper describes in brief the machine itself – Maxwell – its hardware and software(More)
We describe the FPGA HPC Alliance’s Parallel Toolkit (PTK), an initial step towards the standardization of high-level configuration and APIs for high-performance reconfigurable computing (HPRC). We discuss the motivation and challenges of reaping the performance benefits of FPGAs for memory-bound HPC codes and describe the approach we have taken on the(More)
