Field Programmable Gate Arrays (FPGAs) based accelerators are very suitable to implement application-specific processors using uncommon operations or number systems. In this work, we design FPGA-based accelerators for two financial computations with different characteristics and we compare the accelerator performance and energy consumption to a software execution of the application. The experimental results show that significant speed-up and energy savings, can be obtained for large data sets by using the accelerator at expenses of a longer development time.
