FPGA-based computing engines have become a promising option for the implementation of computationally intensive applications due to high flexibility and parallelism. However, one of the main obstacles to overcome when trying to accelerate an application on an FPGA is the bottleneck in off-chip communication, typically to large memories. Often it is known at compile-time that the same data item is accessed many times, and as a result can be loaded once from large off-chip RAM onto scarce on-chip RAM, alleviating this bottleneck.
