Abstract : Recent technology advances have greatly improved the ease with which computationally intense time-critical applications can be implemented in hardware and processed at very high speeds. The numerous benefits of implementing algorithms in hardware, and additional benefits of new hardware technology advances in small supercomputing devices are discussed in detail. Case examples showing comparisons between the computational speed of conventional microprocessors versus hardware implementations built around field-programmable gate arrays are analyzed. Several applications that have benefited from these new technology advances are discussed.
