Cross-Platform FPGA Accelerator Development Using the CoRAM Virtual Architecture and the CONNECT Network-on-Chip Generator

We are hosting the a CoRAM tutorial in conjunction with FPGA 2013.

NOTE: Please make sure to bring a laptop with about 15GB free space and Virtualbox installed (


In this tutorial, participants will develop portable, FPGA-based accelerators using the CoRAM Virtual Architecture and the CONNECT Network-on-Chip generation framework. CoRAM provides a universal abstraction to the user that is both easy-to-use and portable across different FPGA platforms.


The tutorial will be held on Monday, February 11, 2013. More details will be posted as they become available.

The agenda will cover:

  • Overview of CoRAM architecture
  • Compiler
  • NoC Generation Using the CONNECT Network-on-Chip Generator
  • Cross-platform targeting: Xilinx ML605, Altera DE4, Xilinx ZYNQ platform, Convey HC-x platforms (tentative)
  • Memory loading and checking
  • User I/O
  • Application debugging
