The article highlights Mountain View, California-based SGI Inc.'s on-the-fly reconfigurable computing using Field-Programmable Gate Arrays (FPGA). The FPGA technology is a cost-effective method to accelerate algorithms by creating highly specific circuitry as needed simply by loading programs that reset an FPGA as needed per task.
