Accelerating algorithms in FPGAs, one process at a time

C-to-hardware tools can give software programmers access to FPGAs as computing devices.

Feature: 2008-01-01FPGAs have become commonplace in embedded systems and are now beginning to appear in high-performance, server-class computing applications as well. This shift toward hardware-accelerated computing has been driven by two factors: increased FPGA device capabilities and improved software-to-hardware tool flows. Emerging tools can help demystify FPGAs, making them more accessible to software application programmers.
