The Chair of Computer Architecture is now member in the „HSA Academic Centers of Excellence“ of the HSA (Heterogeneous System Architecture) Foundation. In a joint project with the „Embedded Systems Group“ of TU Darmstadt and the chip manufacturer AMD, the chair members Marc Reichenbach and Konrad Häublein are focusing on a faster and better integration of FPGAs into heterogeneous systems. As a final milestone an FPGA-prototype is developed, which holds a custom designed processor and an image processing accelerator unit and will be able to compute HSA-packets.
