Board Management and Configuration for Datacenter FPGAs

Field Programmable Gate Arrays (FPGAs) are a programmable technology that enable the implementation of hardware circuits. FPGAs are now being used as computing devices, but lack the capabilities and services provided by the operating systems used in all software-based computing systems. The goal of this project is to develop some fundamental operating system features for FPGAs that will provide the ability to build applications that are portable between different FPGA boards, make it possible to change the program in the FPGA boards without rebooting the host computer, and facilitate the management of the FPGA board by software running on the host.
