Convey Computer had a lot to say about HLL (high-level language) extensions and FPGA-based application acceleration at SC14 (Supercomputing 14) in New Orleans this week. Convey makes a line of FPGA-based hardware accelerator cards for PCIe computing and server systems including the Wolverine, which is based on a Xilinx Virtex-7 FPGA. Convey is one of several vendors offering COTS (commercial off-the-shelf) accelerator cards that are part of this week’s rollout of the Xilinx SDAccel Development Environment. (See “CPU/GPU-like software development environment for OpenCL, C, C++ delivers FPGA-based app acceleration with 25x better performance/W.”)

Convey’s booth at SC14 incorporated a very informative poster with a ton of good info about using HLL extensions to accelerate application code using FPGA-based boards. I’m going to quote a significant portion of that poster here, just in case you missed the Convey booth at SC14 or weren’t able to journey to New Orleans this week:
