Adaptive Computing Machines and Emulators Lab
University of Washington
FPGAs are devices that can be programmed and reprogrammed to implement
complex digital logic. These devices enable radically faster, lower
power, and lower cost solutions to problems in logic simulation,
digital signal processing, and general-purpose computing.
Researchers in the University of Washington's
Lab investigate the
potential of FPGAs in multiple domains. This includes Adaptive
Computing, the harnessing of FPGAs for general-purpose computing, and
Logic Emulation, the use of multi-FPGA systems to accelerate logic
These efforts are made possible by
grants, contracts, and donations
from the following sources.
ACME Labs is housed in the 307 suite in the new EE/CSE Building,
housing multiple high-end workstations.
Researchers also have access to significant computing resources within
the EE department.
