ABSTRACT
<p><it>Editor's note:</it></p><p>As part of their ongoing work with the National Science Foundation (NSF) Center for High-Performance Reconfigurable Computing (CHREC), the authors are developing a complete tool chain for FPGA-based acceleration of scientific computing, from early-stage assessment of applications down to rapid routing. This article provides an overview of this tool chain.</p><p align="right"><it>&#x2014;George A. Constantinides (Imperial College London) and Nicola Nicolici (McMaster University)</it></p>
