Because of the high numeric complexity of Geometric Algebra, its use in engineering applications relies heavily on tools and devices for efficient implementations. In this article, we present a novel hardware design for a Geometric Algebra coprocessor, called GAPPCO, which is based on Geometric Algebra Parallelism Programs (GAPP). GAPPCO is a design for a coprocessor combining the advantages of optimizing software with a configurable hardware able to implement arbitrary Geometric Algebra algorithms. The idea is to have a fixed hardware easily and fast to be configured for different algorithms. We describe the new hardware design together with the complete tool chain for its configuration.
