Reconfigurable computing began with FPGA cards dropped into expansion slots in workstations. FPGA-based prototyping vendors tended away from that model as interconnect speeds rose and cabling complexity between modules increased. Much faster PCIe interfacing and bigger FPGAs mean revisiting the concept.… Read More
