Abstract

<p>Field-programmable gate arrays (FPGAs) have garnered significant interest in research on high-performance computing because their computation and communication capabilities have drastically improved in recent years due to advances in semiconductor integration technologies that rely on Moore's Law. In addition to improving FPGA performance, toolchains for the development of FPGAs in OpenCL have been developed and offered by FPGA vendors that reduce the programming effort required. These improvements reveal the possibility of implementing a concept to enable on-the-fly offloading computation at which CPUs/GPUs perform poorly to FPGAs while performing low-latency data movement. We think that this concept is key to improving the performance of heterogeneous supercomputers using accelerators such as the GPU. In this paper, we propose a GPU-FPGA-accelerated simulation based on the concept and show our implementation with CUDA and OpenCL mixed programming for the proposed method. The results of experiments show that our proposed method can always achieve a better performance than GPU-based implementation and we believe that realizing GPU-FPGA-accelerated simulation is the most significant difference between our work and previous studies.</p>
