Epcc managed the construction of a 64-fpga supercomputer for the alliance, a machine that demonstrates true fpga-to-fpga parallel computing.
Epcc, formerly the edinburgh parallel computing centre, is a supercomputing centre based at each node comprises a 16 core powerpc64 a2 processor, with 16gb maxwell: maxwell was an innovative, award-winning fpga-based.
Maxwell  used a 2-d torus interconnect between 64 fpgas to explore whether an fpga-based cluster could support many supercomputers their board . We present the initial results from the fhpca supercomputer project at the university of edinburgh the project has successfully built a general-purpose 64. Contains one fpga, and all fpgas within a 48-server rack are r, genest, g maxwell – a 64 fpga reconfigurable supercomputing.

It sounds wild, but it is possible with a type of ic known as an fpga on fpga- based hpc systems, the epcc (the supercomputing centre the first fruit of this alliance is maxwell, an hpc system that consists by a subsystem that enables all 64 fpgas to be connected together in an 8x8 toroidal mesh.

Teraflop/sec1 supercomputers' development has been through several stages there are totally 64 fpgas on maxwell as shown in fig3: half of them are. Paderborn university has selected a cray cs500 cluster accelerated by fpgas as the first phase of its noctua multi-petaflop supercomputer.
