“XILINX Open Hardware 2017” – PhD category Winner

At NECSTLab, we are happy for the new achievement: on 31 August, at the XILINX Open Hardware 2017, the project "N-BObbiDY boo: Magic Acceleration of N-Body Simulation" by Emanuele Del Sozzo, Marco Rabozzi, Marco Nanni, won the PhD category. An abstract from this project: N-Body simulation is the process that describes the evolution of a system of forces that is composed of N particles. It is a highly important process in physics as it is as general that it can describe the behavior of multiple particles in fields that range from the astrophysics to molecular dynamics. The main problem with this algorithm is that its most accurate approach, called the All-Pairs method, is particularly compute intensive and pure software implementation on CPUs are inefficient both from a performance and power…
