Reconfigure.io brings cloud computing and Go language to FPGA development.

Reconfigure.io

A new startup over at Reconfigure.io is working on a cloud computing solution that uses the Go programming language to solve problems that need the flexibility and power of an FPGA. They are providing a high level compiler that lets you code for their FPGA solution using Go instead of VHDL or Verilog. It is also intended to allow a more familiar toolchain/build process that is cloud based. Part of the difficulty with current FPGA development is dealing with the toolchain and learning VHDL or Verilog, they aim to solve both of these problems…

It’s not clear what hardware they are targeting with their Go toolchain but best guess is that they are using Amazon’s FPGA resources rather then a physical board like the Papilio FPGA. Nonetheless this is an interesting FPGA company to keep watching and maybe even sign up for their alpha program…
