To overcome this bottleneck, we propose the PROTOFLEX simulation architecture, which uses FPGAs to accelerate simulation.  ...  Prior FPGA approaches that prototype a complete system in hardware are either too complex when scaling to large-scale configurations or require significant effort to provide full-system support.  ...  Funding for this work was provided in part by grants from the C2S2 Marco Center, NSF CCR-509356, and an IBM Faculty Award. We thank Xilinx for their generous FPGA and tool donations.  ...

On the Feasibility of FPGA Acceleration of Molecular Dynamics Simulations [article]

Michael Schaffner, Luca Benini
2018 arXiv   pre-print
With this report, we aim at clarifying this issue by comparing measured application performance on GPU-dense compute nodes with performance and cost estimates of a FPGA-based single- node system.  ...  However, we also note that scaled multi-node systems could potentially benefit from a hybrid composition, where GPUs are used for compute intensive parts and FPGAs for latency and communication sensitive  ...  Further, they transfer many parameters that could be shared among several particles on a per atom basis onto the the accelerator which leads to significant I/O overhead.  ...

Highly Parallel Multi-FPGA System Compilation from Sequential C/C++ Code in the AWS Cloud

Kemal Ebcioglu, Ismail San
