David A. Patterson, John Wawrzynek and Zhangxi Tan

The RAMP (Research Accelerator for Multiple Processors) project is a multi-univeristy effort to construct a common platform based on FPGAs that will allow researchers to more rapidly pursue the goal of easy-to-program, highly efficient, highly-parallel systems. The goal is create a "watering hole effect" by bringing many disciplines together, to ramp up the rate of innovation in parallel systems.
