This talk will give an overview about the different programming methods available for FPGAs: Hardware Description Languages (HDL), Model-based Design (Matlab/Simulink), High-Level-Synthesis Tools (HLS) and IP-Cores.
Mr. Renhai Xiong (Forschungszentrum Jülich)
With the many existing ASIC/FPGA development tools, techniques, and languages available today, the selection of the right methodology or set of solutions can be daunting. Moving away from the communication obstacle towards algorithm development and design implementation will help to satisfy the ever-increasing demands for the processing performance, while reducing hardware cost and power...
15. Parallelisation potential of image segmentation in hierarchical island structures on hardware-accelerated platforms in real-time applications
Mr. Sergey Suslov (Research Center Juelich, Central Institute for Electronics)
The presented work addresses two types of compact HPC platforms found to be most successful nowadays: FPGA-based expansion cards and graphics processing unit coprocessing boards. The FPGA and GPU architectures are shortly discussed to identify the major aspects of the application design for these platforms. The application in focus is a fast automated image segmentation method (GSC, Grey...
