Kiwic .net Compilation to Hardware.

The HPR L/S Project.

Kiwi Acclerating Data-Intensive Applications Using Networked FPGA

Kiwi was developed at the University of Cambridge Computer Laboratory and Microsoft Research Limited, headed by David Greaves (UoCCL) and Satnam Singh (MRL).

Kiwi is undertaken at the Computer Laboratory as part of a logic synthesis project called HPR L/S and it uses the Orangepath core library.

Kiwi is developing a methodology for hardware design using the parallel programming constructs of the C# language. Specifically, Kiwi consists of a run-time library for native simulation of hardware descriptions within C# and a compiler that generates RTL from stylised .net bytecode.

This web site currently describes early kiwic examples and use. The kiwi runtime library is not yet documented.
