This book is that introduction. The editors present 38 chapters, each written by established RC researchers and educators. They start with an introduction to the basics: what an FPGA is, what suits it to use as a computing platform, and how it compares to other commercial and research engines. The next covers some of the major tools used in FPGA programming. Unlike C, which linguistically captures the sequential nature of the von Neumann bottleneck, VHDL and Verilog inherently describe massive and fine-grained parallelism. These languages present challenges of their own, obviously, so other chapters describe experimental and commercial alternatives to at least parts of the RC programming problem.
Starting around page 300, the book gets into the real meat of RC. Where von Neumann models distribute an algorithm across time, RC distributes it across the space provided by the RC fabric.Read more ›
