Turning software into computer chips - Hastlayer

Sign in to queue

Description

Software is flexible, specialized hardware is extremely fast. So why not write software, then turn it into a computer chip? This is what Hastlayer does by transforming .NET software into electronic circuits. The result is faster and uses less power while you simply keep on writing software. You may not be able to tell just by looking at it but behind some function calls now actually embedded hardware is working! (You wonder how? Check out what FPGAs are!) In this demo-packed session we'll get an overview of what Hastlayer is, why it is useful for developers like you and how to write Hastlayer-compatible software.
