To achieve high performance and high energy efficiency on near-future exascale computing systems, a technology gap
needs to be bridged: increase efficiency of computation with extreme efficiency in HW and new arithmetics, as well as
providing methods and tools for seamless integration of reconfigurable accelerators in heterogeneous HPC multi-node
platforms. TEXTAROSSA aims at tackling this gap through applying a co-design approach to heterogeneous HPC solutions,
supported by the integration and extension of IPs, programming models and tools derived from European research projects,
led by TEXTAROSSA partners. The main directions for innovation are towards: i) enabling mixed-precision computing,
through the definition of IPs, libraries, and compilers supporting novel data types (including Posits), used also to boost the
performance of stencil/tensor accelerators; ii) implementing new multilevel thermal management and two-phase liquid
cooling; iii) developing improved data movement and storage tools through efficient lossy compression; iv) ensure secure
HPC operation through HW accelerated homomorphic cryptography and high-speed on-the-fly encrypted access to HBM
(high bandwidth memor
