FPGAs offer attractive power and performance for many applications, especially relative to traditional sequential architectures. In spite of these advantages, FPGAs have been deployed in only a few, niche domains.We argue that the difficulty of programming FPGAs all but precludes their use in more general systems: FPGA programmers are currently exposed to all the gory system details that software operating systems long ago abstracted away. In this work, we present the Latency-insensitive… CONTINUE READING
