Reconfigurable Systems (Collaborating with Prof. Okuyama): Based on recent FPGA evolution, we are focusing on flexible hardware acceleration systems for various target applications.  PCA (Plastic Cell Architecture), invented in NTT, is our research origin for reconfigurable systems. This is a fine grained, asynchronous system, and its autonomous dynamic reconfigurability is one of quite innovating features, but performance is not satisfactory in practical applications. Currently, we are moving to low-cost high performance computing systems using FPGAs and GPGPUs.  Our final goal is gDesktop Super computerh.


  • Flexible FPGA-based systems with a framework design environment
  • Acceleration by the use of GPGPUs
