AbstractParallel computing is emerging as an important area of research in computer architectures and software systems. Many algorithms can be greatly accelerated using parallel computing techniques. Specialized parallel computer architectures are used for accelerating speci�c tasks. High-Energy Physics Experiments measuring systems often use FPGAs for �ne-grained computation. FPGA combines many bene�ts of both software and ASIC implementations. Like software, the mapped circuit is exible, and can be recon�gured over the lifetime of the system. FPGAs therefore have the potential to achieve far greater performance than software as a result of bypassing the fetch-decode-execute operations of traditional processors, and possibly exploiting a greater level of parallelism. Creating parallel programs implemented in FPGAs is not trivial. This paper presents existing methods and tools for �ne-grained computation implemented in FPGA using Behavioral Description and High Level Programming Languages.
