Efficient Mapping of Irregular Memory Accesses on FPGA

Participants : Xinyu Niu [Imperial College London] , Tomofumi Yuki.

In a collaboration with Imperial College, we looked at efficiently implementing dynamic dependences on FPGAs. The collaboration is in the context of the EURECA project (http://www.doc.ic.ac.uk/~nx210/2015/09/01/eureca.html) where the dynamic reconfigurability of modern FPGAs is used to efficiently handle dynamic access patterns. We worked on analyzing data dependent array accesses to identify regularities within irregular memory accesses to reduce the cost of a dynamic memory reconfiguration module.

One part of this work has been published at the 2016 International Conference on Field Programmable Logic and Applications [5].
