PhD studentship: mapping SYCL (C++) to FPGA architectures
by Rob Stewart, March 1, 2019

Two key requirements for real time decision making in robotics systems and smart sensors are 1) increased compute power for intelligent autonomy, and 2) energy efficiency for long-lasting operation. FPGAs are an ideal fit, but are notoriously difficult to program.

This PhD project will develop hardware cost modelling and compiler optimisation techniques to map SYCL, a C++ standard for heterogeneous computing, down to programmable FPGAs. The goal is to support the generation of extremely efficient application specific processors from high level C++, for autonomous devices and smart sensors.

The PhD will be an industrial collaboration between Codeplay and Dr Robert Stewart at Heriot-Watt University in Edinburgh.

Application deadline: 17th March.
