Abstract

One of the obvious advantages of FPGA-based reconfigurable computing is customizability of a tradeoff point between performance and hardware costs. However, this trade-off has rarely been discussed in a whole application level, which is the most important view for application users. This paper presents empirical evaluation of a hardware module sharing technique which can shift a tradeoff point of area and performance on an FPGA-based biochemical simulator. The biochemical simulation results are discussed in terms of hardware costs, simulation throughput, parallelism extracted in simulation hardware, and data transfer overheads.
