Fortran High-Level Synthesis: reducing the barriers to accelerating HPC codes on FPGAs
Computer programs were first written in Fortran back in the 1960s, when programmers had to undertake the difficult task of generating punch cards to run codes. The method used to write programs has evolved greatly since, but Fortran is still as present as any other modern programming language.
