This paper addresses the issue of making FPGAbased co-processors accessible to systems biologists who do not have an extensive knowledge of digital circuit design or hardware description languages like VHDL or Verilog. Our approach allows a software engineer to model the compute intensive core of some algorithm (the as a multi-threaded program which can then be automatically synthesized into a digital circuit. Key aspects of our approach include the ability to control the quality of results by… CONTINUE READING
