SARA: Scaling a Reconfigurable Dataflow Accelerator

Yaqi Zhang, Nathan Zhang, Tian Zhao, Matt Vilim, Muhammad Shahbaz, Kunle Olukotun (Stanford) Abstract—"The need for speed in modern data-intensive workloads and the rise of “dark silicon” in the semiconductor industry are pushing for larger, faster, and more energy and areaefficient architectures, such as Reconfigurable Dataflow Accelerators (RDAs). Nevertheless, challenges remain in d... » read more
