Back in about 1980 we started building microprocessors into electronic equipment, because they could do, quite easily, things that were difficult or expensive to do with hard-wired logic. Now we have FPG As that can do, quite easily, things (particularly in the areas such as processing live media) that need a lot of power to do with processors. And yet we haven’t moved on from a mindset based on general-purpose CPUs: FPGA vendors build hard-wired CPUs into their products, and high-level synthesis of FPGA logic requires the source to be written in languages such as C. This talk explores how we might do better.
