By Wim Vanderbauwhede, Khaled Benkrid

High-Performance Computing utilizing FPGA covers the realm of excessive functionality reconfigurable computing (HPRC). This e-book presents an outline of architectures, instruments and functions for High-Performance Reconfigurable Computing (HPRC). FPGAs provide very excessive I/O bandwidth and fine-grained, customized and versatile parallelism and with the ever-increasing computational wishes coupled with the frequency/power wall, the expanding adulthood and features of FPGAs, and the arrival of multicore processors which has brought on the popularity of parallel computational versions. The half on architectures will introduce various FPGA-based HPC systems: hooked up co-processor HPRC architectures reminiscent of the CHREC’s Novo-G and EPCC’s  Maxwell structures; tightly coupled HRPC architectures, e.g. the exhibit hybrid-core machine; reconfigurably networked HPRC architectures, e.g. the QPACE process, and standalone HPRC architectures akin to EPFL’s CONFETTI method. The half on instruments will concentrate on high-level programming ways for HPRC, with chapters on C-to-Gate instruments (such as Impulse-C, AutoESL, Handel-C, MORA-C++); Graphical instruments (MATLAB-Simulink, NI LabVIEW); Domain-specific languages, languages for heterogeneous computing(for instance OpenCL, Microsoft’s Kiwi and Alchemy projects).  The half on functions will current case from  numerous software domain names the place HPRC has been used effectively, comparable to Bioinformatics and Computational Biology; monetary Computing; Stencil computations; info retrieval; Lattice QCD; Astrophysics simulations; climate and weather modeling.

On a Method of Multiprogramming (Monographs in Computer Science)

The following, the authors suggest a mode for the formal improvement of parallel courses - or multiprograms as they like to name them. They accomplish this with at the very least formal equipment, i. e. with the predicate calculus and the good- confirmed thought of Owicki and Gries. They express that the Owicki/Gries thought might be successfully placed to paintings for the formal improvement of multiprograms, whether those algorithms are allotted or now not.

BIOS Disassembly Ninjutsu Uncovered (Uncovered series)

Explaining protection vulnerabilities, attainable exploitation eventualities, and prevention in a scientific demeanour, this advisor to BIOS exploitation describes the reverse-engineering strategies used to assemble info from BIOS and enlargement ROMs. SMBIOS/DMI exploitation techniques—including BIOS rootkits and machine defense—and the exploitation of embedded x86 BIOS also are lined

Theoretical foundations of computer science

Explores uncomplicated innovations of theoretical laptop technology and indicates how they practice to present programming perform. assurance levels from classical issues, corresponding to formal languages, automata, and compatibility, to formal semantics, versions for concurrent computation, and application semantics.

Example text

A comparison of different FPGA implementations of the European option3 benchmark against other implementations using GPUs, Cell BE, and a traditional software implementation was presented in [7]. In this work, the FPGA implementation was produced using “HyperStreams,” which is a high level abstraction for designing arithmetic pipelines built on the Handel-C programming language. An acceleration of 146x compared to a reference software implantation can be obtained using FPGAs. 4 GHz Intel Xeon processor, for one-factor and the multi-factor models, respectively.
