The Invention
A hardware accelerator for computers combines a stand-alone, high-speed, fixed program dataflow functional element with a stream processor, the latter of which may autonomously access memory in predefined access patterns after receiving simple stream instructions and provide them to the dataflow functional element. The result is a compact, high-speed processor that may exploit fixed program dataflow functional elements.
