Abstract
Hardware accelerators release the general purpose processor of a system from very compute-demanding tasks. This work presents a Configurable Many-core Accelerator for FPGA-based systems, named CoMA. Its architecture combines an array of processing cores interconnected by an NoC, with an I/O interface based on the AXI protocol. CoMA provides the designer with a system abstraction layer that facilitates task partitioning and peripheral access. The implementation of the I/O interface was verified through simulation, and synthesized for an FPGA.
