DescriptionThis session presents significant advancements in application-specific accelerators and acceleration technologies. With the end of Moore's Law, advances in general-purpose computing are slowing, with application-specific hardware accelerators emerging as an alternative. This session presents accelerations for workloads in bioinformatics, image processing, and operating system thread management, as well as a novel methodology to map polyhedral loops to a programmable Coarse Grained Reconfigurable Array (CGRA) accelerator.
