ORNL’s Future Technologies Group Tackles Memory and More

October 13, 2016

“Imagine if you’ve got a Titan-size computer (27 PFlops) and it has main memory that’s partially non-volatile memory and you could just leave your data in that memory between executions then just come back and start computing on that data as it sits in memory,” says Jeffrey Vetter, group leader of the Future Technologies Group at Oak Ridge National Labs.

ORNL Researchers Create Framework for Easier, Effective FPGA Programming

May 24, 2016

Programmability and portability problems have long inhibited broader use of FPGA technology. FPGAs are already widely and effectively used in many dedicated applications (accelerated packet processing, for example), but generally not in situations that require ‘reconfiguring’ the FPGA to accommodate different applications. A group of researchers from Oak Ridge National Laboratory is hoping to change that. Read more…
