High-Performance Reconfigurable Computing (HPRC) is a novel approach to provide large-scale computing power to modern scientific applications. Using both General-Purpose Processors (GPPs) and FPGAs allows application designers to exploit fine-grained and coarse-grained parallelism, achieving high degrees of speedup. One scientific application that benefits from this technique is backprojection, an image formation algorithm that can be used as part of a Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) processing system. The authors present an implementation of backprojection for SAR on an HPRC system.
