SpExSim: assessing kernel suitability for C-based high-level hardware synthesis
The Journal of Supercomputing, pp. 1-16, 2017.
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
