1st European NetFPGA Developers Workshop, Sep. 9-10th, 2010

University of Cambridge, Computer Laboratory

Latest News


What have you done with your NetFPGA? You already know that the NetFPGA implements a Gigabit NIC, a hardware-accelerated Internet router, a traffic generator, and an OpenFlow switch, and more. What else can it do? We invite NetFPGA Developers to come to Cambridge to discuss the newest NetFPGA modules, applications, and hardware.

The NetFPGA workshop is intended to provide a NetFPGA-specific venue. Previous NetFPGA Developers Workshops have seen papers across a range of topics:

Papers can range from applications that built new HDL for the NetFPGA through to applications built on top of the NetFPGA infrastructure (reference routers and openflow); the criterion is your paper describes work you can demonstrate and, ideally, leads to a code contribution to the NetFPGA project.
