haskell to FPGA, seems relevant..

this touches on ideas that seem to hit the nail on the head ?

it talks about compiling Haskell to FPGA or other extremely parallel hardware (he mentions some experimental hardware that that can switch what function it implements. Sounds to me exactly like the mindset needed for parallella, i.e. the ability to break a large program into data flow through small , switchable components.)

I wonder if there's an intermediate there between Haskell and HDL that could actually be compiled to Parallella code..

i'm not personally a haskeller, but I appreciate why its got so much attention.

It is, if you can get something to actually build the bit files resulting from the Verilog or VHDL outputs from Clash (Which so far seems to be the cleanest at this date)

I'm about to start working on some FPGA stuff using Haskell (after brushing off the cobwebs off my teflon coated memory on the language) and see if I get anywhere with it. The closest thing you're going to be able to get ARM/Risc-V hosted FPGA tools is for Lattice's stuff since that's been properly reversed/otherwise FOSSed. Xilinx? Altera? Best o' luck...you'll need it.

Yeah, I know, necro-ing a thread. I wasn't around. Deal. :D
