  • Introduces hardware compilation and reconfigurable computing architectures
  • Presents a range of compiler code transformations and mapping techniques focusing on imperative programming languages
  • Bridges the gap between software compilation, hardware compilation, and synthesis domains
  • Brings a number of compilation techniques together into one structured source and includes representative examples of their applications
  • Provides a historical perspective on representative compilations research efforts over the last 15 years

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.

Key Features:

  • 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.

  • Provides a historical perspective on representative compilation research efforts over the last 15 years.
