—This paper presents a novel framework for implementing portable and scalable data-intensive applications on reconfigurable hardware. Instead of using expensive " reconfig-urable supercomputers " , we focus our work on standard PCs and PCI-Express extension cards featuring Field-Programmable Gate Arrays (FPGAs) and memory. In our framework, we exploit… (More)
This paper presents our approach for making FPGA accelerators accessible to software (SW) programmers. It is intended as a starting point for collaborations with other groups pursuing similar objectives. We report on our current SAccO platform (Scalable Accelerator platform Osnabr\"uck) and the planned project extending this platform.
