Research Institution
"The compact, acoustic-model, execution server (CAMES) and enhanced system-level development environment enables scientists to deliver compute intensive algorithms to all fleet platform types. All topic requirements are met by CAMES architecture implementedas a highly compact, general-purpose execution engine. The key innovation is the CAMES Synchronizing Memory Manager(SMM), which delivers data to hardware elements, keeping them busy on compute intensive models or data mining. The SMM achieves continuousexecution of parallel and pipelined algorithms by queuing data when units are busy and allowing units to operate independently when free. The CAMES is based on extremely high performance field programmable gate arrays (FPGAs). The SMM enables programmingof multiple FPGA by adding the ability to declare data across all memories. Accord embeds this into a commercial, system-level, programming environment to coordinate multiple FPGAs. A programmer sees a tread view of the model algorithm, not a hardwaredesign language view. When validated a model is automatically synthesized, placed and routed and loaded into CAMES. The CAMES is compact and is configured for placement in limited environments, using only a single reconfigurable interface. Feasibility ofthe SMM will be established using memory/compute intensive elements of the Geoacoustic Inversion Technique. The CAMES is a general-purpose scientific and engineering model accelerator suita
