The Chair of Computer Architecture is now member in the "HSA Academic Centers of Excellence"
of the HSA (Heterogeneous System Architecture) Foundation. In a joint project with the "Embedded
Systems Group" of TU Darmstadt and the chip manufacturer AMD, the chair members
Marc Reichenbach and
Konrad Häublein are focusing on a faster and better integration of FPGAs into
heterogeneous systems. As a final milestone an FPGA-prototype is developed, which holds a
custom designed processor and an image processing accelerator unit and will be able to
compute HSA-packets. More information can be found at the
Blog of the HSA Foundation.

For the third year in a row members of our department, Thomas Heller and
Andreas Schäfer, participate as mentors in coordination with
the STE||AR Group in the
GSoC program. We cordially invite students (m/f) from FAU and any
other university to get in contact with us to propose project ideas.
