Hastlayer SDK Readme

Overview

Hastlayer - be the hardware. Hastlayer automatically transforms .NET assemblies into computer chips, improving performance and lowering power consumption for massively parallel applications.

Hastlayer uses FPGAs (chips that can be "re-wired" on the fly): Simply select the compute-bound part of your .NET program, and Hastlayer seamlessly swaps it out with a generated FPGA implementation. Since .NET Intermediate Language assemblies (but not C#, VisualBasic or other code) are transformed, you can use any .NET language (e.g. C#, VB, F# - sample included, C++, Python, PHP, and JavaScript) in theory.

Hastlayer was also featured on .NET Conf 2017 and many other conferences and meetups. The recorded session covers interesting features of Hastlayer (it's also on YouTube). Check out the FAQ for more information.

This is the PC-side component of Hastlayer, the one that transforms .NET assemblies, programs attached FPGAs, and communicates with said FPGAs.

Created by Lombiq Technologies, an open source .NET web development company working mostly with Orchard CMS.

Hastlayer uses ILSpy to process CIL assemblies and Orchard Application Host to utilize Orchard as the application framework.

Notes on Hastlayer's documentation

These text files should only serve as a starting point. The samples are the best source of information on how to use Hastlayer. The public API of Hastlayer is also documented inline as code comments. Please check the comments for clarification. The projects also have README files.

Repository and contributing

The project's source is available in a git repository on GitHub. Note that due to a repository purge the repo history doesn't contain anything from before July 2017 though development has been ongoing more or less actively from 2015.

Bug reports, feature requests and comments are warmly welcome and feel free to send pull requests too.

This project is developed by Lombiq Technologies Ltd. Commercial-grade support is available through Lombiq.
