Workshop: FPGAs for Supercomputing? Progress and Challenges
TimeFriday, November 17th12pm - 12:30pm
DescriptionField-programmable gate arrays (FPGAs) have become keystones of our modern electronics ecosystem. Despite higher-end components possessing immense processing power, however, FPGAs are rarely employed as general-purpose computational accelerators. In this talk, I'll discuss why FPGAs seem attractive as HPC accelerators and our experience experimenting with different kinds of algorithms on FPGAs. Finally, I'll share some thoughts on how common HPC programming models and environments can be adapted to support FPGAs, and moreover, how partial reconfigurability and combined CPU/FPGA packages can be leveraged to make this easier.
