FPL (Field Programmable Logic) 2012 conference keynote: Compiling OpenCL to FPGAs

• Tags: OpenCL FPGA

FPGA is a large array of fine-grained programmable elements that can be configured in such a way to efficiently solve many complex problems. The primary method of design entry for FPGAs is through Hardware Design Languages (HDLs) such as VHDL or Verilog. This talk by Deshanand Singh of Altera, at the FPL2012 conference, explores techniques o program FPGAs at a level of abstraction that is closer to traditional software-centric approaches using OpenCL.
