Hastlayer .NET native hardware performance booster
Are slow processes and high power consumption stopping you from reaching the customers you want? Ever thought of combining the flexibility of software with the speeds of dedicated hardware in order to spice things up around your project a bit? Hastlayer will do just that.
Hastlayer transforms .NET software into FPGA-implemented logic circuits. (FPGAs are chips that can mimic other chips.) The result is code that runs faster and uses less power than a code-only solution without sacrificing the ability of further developing your software. Using Hastlayer will optimize your performance and lower the power consumption of hardware, which will bring you more satisfied customers who want your solution and a boost in your company’s revenue.
FPGAs aren’t new, in fact, many of the applications you use on the web are using FPGAs in the background. However, Hastlayer’s ability to reconfigure FPGAs on the fly from Visual Studio is a brand-new way of using them. It’s suitable for a lot of different applications, including:
- Machine learning and artificial intelligence
- Image processing, video processing, and computer vision
- Algorithmic trading
- Data compression and analysis
- Cryptocurrency mining
- Embedded systems (robots, IoT devices)
These are some examples of the areas where FPGAs are already in use, but we can’t wait to see what you come up with!
To get started, you’ll need a compatible FPGA board (at the moment, that means a Nexys A7, but we’ll be adding support for additional boards over time) and Visual Studio 2017 or later (any edition).
