From Legacy Scientific Code to FPGAs in the Cloud

In this talk I will give an overview of our work on the EPSRC TyTra project on compilation of legacy scientific code to FPGAs. I will discuss our overall approach and focus on the compiler-based program analysis and transformations required to turn imperative, array based code into stream-based pipelined code for FPGAs.
