To overcome issues originating from the CMOS technology, a large-scale reconfigurable data-path (LSRDP) processor based on single-flux quantum circuits is introduced. LSRDP is augmented to a general purpose processor to accelerate the execution of data flow graphs (DFGs) extracted from scientific applications. Procedure of mapping large DFGs onto the LSRDP is discussed and our proposed techniques for reducing area of the accelerator within the design procedure will be introduced as well.
