ICHEC DSP Demonstration Featuring Xilinx FPGAs

ICHEC discusses the suitability of FPGAs for HPC applications and highlights the optimal data pattern for the devices able to utilize all the DSPs on a particular FPGA. Utilizing a Xilinx Virtex-7 FPGA and the Kintex KU115, ICHEC took advantage of reduced precision efficiency to achieve a peak performance of about 2.7 TeraOPs on INT16.
