Grad Talks: Automatic Synthesis of Hardware from Software



Professor Anderson’s research aims to allow software design methodologies to be used for hardware design; particularly, hardware as implemented on field-programmable gate arrays (FPGAs). FPGAs are programmable computer chips that can be configured in the field by the end user. Recently, FPGA chips have been deployed in cloud-computing environments, where they work alongside traditional processors to realize computations with better throughput and energy efficiency.
