The AXIOM project was essential to the development of OmpSs@FPGA. “During the AXIOM project, we laid the foundations for making OmpSs@FPGA the programming standard for symmetric multiprocessing (SMP) and FPGA embedded systems,” explains Carlos Álvarez, a researcher in the BSC Computer Science department.

“With OmpSs@FPGA, BSC is leading the way in embedded systems programming,” adds Xavier Martorell, leader of the parallel programming models group at BSC. “The research undertaken during the AXIOM project is now being built upon in other projects, such EuroEXA, a major EU-funded project with a budget of €20 million which is working towards exascale supercomputers for Europe.”
