FPGAs are on the rise as they are faster and more energy efficient than normal CPUs. Applications can be found in widely varying fields, such as big data, radio communication, control systems.
However, programming an FPGA is a difficult and time consuming task, which seems to be reserved for highly skilled specialists. Traditional hardware description languages (VHDL, Verilog) offer only low level abstraction mechanisms, whereas most high level synthesis tools are based on mainstream programming languages (C/C++, Python) which do not match hardware architecture.
In this presentation a novel approach to program an FPGA, based on functionality, will be introduced. Differences with traditional approaches will be discussed and advantages will be shown.
