This book describes a wide range of code transformations and mapping techniques for compiling programs written in high-level programming languages to reconfigurable architectures. While many of these transformations and mapping techniques have been developed in the context of compilation for traditional architectures and high-level synthesis, their application to reconfigurable architectures poses a whole new set of challenges- particularly when targeting fine-grained reconfigurable architectures such as contemporary Field-Programmable Gate-Arrays (FPGAs).
Organized in eight chapters, this book provides a helpful structure for practitioners and graduate students in the area of computer science and electrical and computer engineering to effectively map computations to reconfigurable architectures.
Introduces the reader to hardware compilation and reconfigurable computing architectures.
Presents a range of compiler code transformations and mapping techniques focusing on imperative programming languages.
Allows the reader to bridge the gap between the software compilation and the hardware compilation and synthesis domains.
Brings a number of compilation techniques together into one structured source, and includes representative examples of their applications.
