The power of FPGAs at the hand of software developers

Hastlayer aims to provide software developers of the .NET platform a tool to accelerate performance-critical parts of their programs with FPGAs, while substiantially increasing performance and drastically reducing power consumption compared to high-end CPUs. Hastlayer automatically generates FPGA-implemented logic circuits from .NET program code and masks the part of the software that was swapped out with a hardware implementation – the surrounding software uses the hardware component just as it would be standard .NET software.

Hastlayer is primarily intended to be used by software developers with no hardware design knowledge, allowing them to utilize the power of FPGAs with their existing skills.
