Lookup-based Remote Laboratory for FPGA Digital Design Prototyping

Leandro Soares Indrusiak, Manfred Glesner, Ricardo Augusto da Luz Reis

Abstract

This paper presents an approach that allows sharing and remote usage of FPGA prototyping boards, aiming to an efficient and simplified access to the board resources by students and designers. A lookup service hides the complexity of the distribution of the boards over the network, while a proxybased access interface abstracts the internals of each board, allowing integration at the API level.
