Field-Programmable Systems and Applications Research
Field-Programmable Systems are FPGA systems with memory that are typically connected to some host computer. These are used either as "large FPGAs" to prototype or build larger systems. Our effort at Toronto has been in building and using a series of such systems, collectively known as the Transmogrifiers. More recently, we have been using the Altera/Terasic developed systems, for which we have been providing software to interface between the host and the programmable hardware system.
