The integration of High Performance Computing with Reconfigurable Computing offers great potential for increased performance and flexibility for a wide range of computing problems. High Performance Computing architectures and Reconfigurable Computing systems have independently demonstrated performance advantages for applications such as digital signal processing and pattern recognition. By exploiting the near hardware specific speed of Reconfigurable Computing systems incorporated into a computer cluster, there is potential for significant performance advantages over software-only or uniprocessor solutions. However, application development barriers exist that will slow the widespread adoption of this technology. This report presents the results of research seeking to overcome one of these barriers, the development of a programming framework for High Performance Reconfigurable Computing systems.
