[Slides] Research Infrastructures for Accelerator-Centric Architecture – High Level Design and Simulation

 

This 219 page slides present “Research Infrastructures for Accelerator-Centric Architectures” from Harvard and Univ of Virginia researchers. It applies high level design, simulation, synthesis, and benchmark techniques to accelerator-centric problem or datapath-centric problem. A good reading if you are interested in high level design and synthesis.

It first introduces Aladdin, a power and performance accelerator simulator which enables pre-RTL simulation of accelerators with the rest of the SoC.

It then has a good introduction of Xilinx HLS flow.

And software-hardware co-design.

Finally it introduces LUMOS, a framework with analytical models for heterogeneous architectures.

    Good reference. Xilinx Vivardo HLS is adopted in the flow. Wondering if main stream tools such as catapult and forte will be supported.
