OpenCL on FPGAs: Accelerating Performance and Design Productivity

FPGAs have amazing capabilities when it comes to accelerating performance-critical algorithms at a tiny fraction of the power it would require to run them in software. The marriage of FPGAs with conventional CPUs could provide a truly remarkable high-performance computing platform.

However, the problem has always been how to program one of these awesome FPGA+CPU machines.

In this episode of Chalk TalkHD Amelia chats with Albert Chang of Altera about about how OpenCL can now be used to program FPGAs.  OpenCL is already very popular for programming systems with graphics processors (GPUs). Now, Altera has enabled us to use this same language to program FPGA+CPU systems.
