The energy efficiency of computer systems can be increased by migrating computational kernels that are known to under-utilize the CPU to an FPGA based coprocessor. In contrast to traditional I/O-based coprocessors that require explicit data movement, coherently attached accelerators can operate on the same virtual address space than the host CPU. A shared memory organization enables widely accepted programming models and helps to deploy energy efficient accelerators in general purpose computing… CONTINUE READING
