We present a novel approach to accelerate astrophysical hydrodynamical simulations. We are developing a special purpose computing system for the simulation of galaxy evolution using Field Programmable Gate Array (FPGA) chips as the computing engine. Together with our developed programming system, we have implemented computing pipelines for the Smoothed Particle Hydrodynamics (SPH) method on our PROGRAPE system. The SPH simulations using PROGRAPE is 4-11 times faster than the calculation without the board.
