FiPS

Developing Hardware and Design Methodologies for Heterogeneous Low Power Field Programmable Servers
The FiPS goal is to improve energy efficiency of computing systems in data centres. To achieve this goal FiPS effectively uses alternative kinds of computers such as smart-phone processors, 3D graphic chips and reconfigurable FPGA hardware (as used in DSL modems and network switches), which can provide much higher energy efficiency than traditional processors. However, the drawback of building super-computers from a heterogeneous network of processors rather than a regular grid of identical processors is that heterogeneous systems are much harder to program, as the individual properties of many different components have to be considered. Hence, FiPS also aims at delivering a methodology that facilitates the whole process of application and hardware architecture mapping.
 
Efficiency of the hardware and software platforms developed within the project will be demonstrated using a set of diverse, real-life, and demanding applications.
 
PSNC prepares and operates a testbed for applications. Is is also responsible for monitoring and evaluation of hardware and software platforms developed within the project. One of the applications is the bioinformatics library developed at PSNC.
