Note unusual time and location

About 15 years ago, computer architecture research became boring and incremental. This was to some extent caused by the inability of small groups to build real systems. Today, Field-Programmable Gate Arrays (FPGAs) offer a possible solution to this problem. While the systems that can be built using these devices cannot rival custom silicon implementations, they can run at speeds that are much faster than software simulation.

In this talk, I will describe BEE3 , an FPGA -based system designed at Microsoft to support architecture research both in academia and industry.

This talk is part of the Computer Laboratory Computer Architecture Group Meeting series.
