FireSim: FPGA-Accelerated Cycle-Exact Scale-Out System Simulation in the Public Cloud

45th ACM/IEEE International Symposium on Computer Architecture (ISCA 2018) 2018 firesim/firesim

We present FireSim, an open-source simulation platform that enables cycle-exact microarchitectural simulation of large scale-out clusters by combining FPGA-accelerated simulation of silicon-proven RTL designs with a scalable, distributed network simulation.
