Detecting Kernels Suitable for C-Based High-Level Hardware Synthesis
UIC/ATC/ScalCom/CBDCom/IoP/SmartWorld, pp. 1157-1164, 2016.
We present SpExSim, a software tool for quickly surveying legacy code bases for kernels that could be accelerated by FPGA-based compute units. We specifically aim for low development effort by considering the use of C-based high-level hardware synthesis, instead of complex manual hardware designs. SpExSim not only exploits the spatially d...More
