Chai benchmarks for FPGA just released

We’ve just released the benchmarks for our recent paper: “Analysis and Modeling of Collaborative Execution Strategies for Heterogeneous CPU-FPGA Architectures”,  in collaboration with Prof. Hwu’s IMPACT Research Group:



Google Faculty Research Award for SAFARI!

The Google Faculty Research Awards for 2018 were recently announced, and our group received an award in the Mobile category!  The Google Faculty Research Awards Program supports world-class, permanent faculty pursuing cutting-edge research in areas of mutual interest.  The award is highly competitive – only 15% of applicants receive funding after a rigorous Google-wide review process.  Congratulations to Onur Mutlu and the SAFARI Research Group!
