Paper Abstract

As FPGA density increases, so does the potential for configurable computing machines. Unfortunately, the larger designs which take advantage of the higher densities require much more effort and longer design cycles, making it even less likely to appeal to users outside the field of configurable computing. To combat this problem, we present the Reconfigurable Computing Application Development Environment (RCADE). The goals of RCADE are to produce high performance applications, to make FPGA design more accessible to those who are not hardware engineers, to shorten the design lifecycle, and to ease the process of migration from one platform to another. Here, we discuss the environment architecture, the current set of agents, and other agents to be developed.
