 +FPGA has become popular as a device which can realize energy efficient
 +processing by optimized and parallel processing for a specific application.
 +However, development productivity of FPGA is much worse than software
 +development. High-level synthesis is emerging in recent years to implement
 +FPGA circuits with C, Java and so on. However, it is still difficult for
 +software engineers to handle.
 + To raise the productivity of a hardware(HW)/​software(SW) system,
 +componentization of FPGA can be a solution for the problem. To raise the
 +productivity of a HW/SW system, it is necessary to realize reusability of
 +the designs of HW and SW. In the seminar, methods of wrapping FPGA circuit
 +as a component are presented, which have software friendly interfaces on
 +FPGA at several abstraction levels.
 +Takeshi Ohkawa is an Assistant Professor in Utsunomiya University, Japan. He
 +received his M.E. and Ph.D. from Tohoku University in 2000 and 2003,
 +respectively,​ and was engaged in research on dynamically reconfigurable FPGA
 +device/​tools and system at Tohoku University. He joined National Institute
 +for Advanced Industrial Science and Technology (AIST) in 2004 and started
 +research on distributed embedded systems. He had been working in TOPS
 +Systems Corp on heterogeneous multicore processor hardware and software
 +design from 2009 to 2011. His current research interests are design
 +technology and tools for FPGA to realize low power robots and vision
