Details

Zoltán Lehóczky, lead developer of Hastlayer (https://hastlayer.com/), will demonstrate on how Hastlayer can turn .NET code into hardware logic. Hastlayer is a project from Lombiq Technologies (https://lombiq.com/), from Hungary. With its ASP.NET (http://asp.net/) services Lombiq mostly works with clients from Western Europe and North America, including entities like the Smithsonian Institution, .NET Foundation and Microsoft itself.

Hastlayer works by transforming .NET IL into VHDL, which is a hardware description language that can be used to program FPGA (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Field-programmable_gate_array)s. This enables software developers to write hardware logic without spending as much time learning the ins and outs of the hardware stack.
