Hastlayer (https://hastlayer.com/) by Lombiq Technologies is a .NET software developer-focused, easy-to-use high-level synthesis tool with the aim of accelerating massively parallel applications. It converts standard .NET Common Intermediate Language (CIL) bytecode into equivalent Very High Speed Integrated Circuit Hardware Description Language (VHDL) constructs which can be implemented in hardware using FPGAs. Cloud-available FPGA platforms are supported for high-performance use-cases, as well as the Zynq 7000 family of FPGA SoC devices for low-power embedded systems like drones and nanosatellites. In this talk, we'll introduce Hastlayer and how it can be used, our results showing up to 2 orders of magnitude speed and power efficiency increases, as well as the collaboration partners we seek from academia and other industry players.
