Markus Weinhardt,

University of Karlsruhe


In this talk, Prof. Markus Weinhardt will present the results of several research
projects conducted at different institutions.
In the first project (at KIT and Imperial College), the “Pipeline
Vectorization” compilation method for FPGAs was developed. The second
project (at PACT XPP Technologies) extended this method for
Coarse-Grain Reconfigurable Architectures. The PACT XPP-III processor is
also presented. The third project (at Osnabrueck UAS) deals with FPGA
Acceleration for Streaming Applications.


Prof. Weinhardt did his Ph.D. (dissertation: “Übersetzungsmethoden für strukturprogrammierbare Rechner” – “Compilation techniques for structurally programmable computers”, in German) in the area of reconfigurable computing from 1994 – 1997, at the Computer Science Department of the University of Karlsruhe (now Karlsruhe Institute of Technology), Germany.
From 1997 – 2000, held a postdoc position with Wayne Luk at the Department of Computing, Imperial College, London.
From 2000 – 2009, was responsible for the compiler developments at PACT XPP Technologies AG in Munich, Germany.
Since September 2009 he his a Professor at the University of Applied Sciences (Hochschule) Osnabrück.
