Topic 1 - ISA expansion for a soft-core GPU

The FGPU (a soft GPU core that can be implemented in an FPGA) has a working (but limited) OpenCL support, which means that not every instruction can be understood by the FGPU. The objective of this project is to modify the cutsom compiler (LLVM) for the FGPU (a soft-core GPU on an FPGA) in order to add more openCL compatibility.

This thesis is targeted for master students.

As its a complex topic, the student should have previous knowledge of how compilers work. Knowledge of OpenCL, GPUs, and/or LLVM is a plus.
