A Co-Design Framework with OpenCL Support for Low-Energy Wide SIMD Processor

Energy efficiency is one of the most important metrics in embedded processor design. The use of wide SIMD architecture is a promising approach to build energyefficient high performance embedded processors. In this paper, we propose a design framework for a configurable wide SIMD architecture that utilizes an explicit datapath to achieve high energy efficiency. The […]

OpenCL Based Digital Image Projection Acceleration

In this thesis, several implementations of an image back projection algorithm using Open Computing Language (OpenCL) for different types of processors are developed. Image back projection is a method to take aerial imagery and create a map-like image that contains real-world dimensions and to remove the perspective angle from the camera. The processors that ran […]

Automatic OpenCL code generation for multi-device heterogeneous architectures

Using multiple accelerators, such as GPUs or Xeon Phis, is attractive to improve the performance of large data parallel applications and to increase the size of their workloads. However, writing an application for multiple accelerators remains today challenging because going from a single accelerator to multiple ones indeed requires to deal with potentially nonuniform domain […]

An OpenCL design of the Bob Jenkins lookup3 hash function using the Xilinx SDAccel Development Environment

In this report, we present an OpenCL-based design of a hashing function which forms a core component of memcached [1], a distributed in-memory key-value store caching layer widely used to reduce access load between web servers and databases. Our work has been inspired by recent research investigations on dataflow architectures for key-value stores that can […]

CLTune: A Generic Auto-Tuner for OpenCL Kernels

This work presents CLTune, an auto-tuner for OpenCL kernels. It evaluates and tunes kernel performance of a generic, user-defined search space of possible parametervalue combinations. Example parameters include the OpenCL workgroup size, vector data-types, tile sizes, and loop unrolling factors. CLTune can be used in the following scenarios: 1) when there are too many tunable […]

OpenCL 2.0 for FPGAs using OCLAcc

Designing hardware is a time-consuming and complex process. Realization of both, embedded and high-performance applications can benefit from a design process on a higher level of abstraction. This helps to reduce development time and allows to iteratively test and optimize the hardware design during development, as common in software development. We present our tool, OCLAcc, […]

Dynamic Memory Allocation for OpenCL

Heterogeneous systems are computer systems that exploit multiple devices with different processor architectures to improve the computing efficiency by offloading workloads to the device that fits them best. OpenCL is a framework for building portable applications that run across different devices in heterogeneous systems. It has gained traction as a powerful tool for high-performance computing. […]

A CPU and GPU Heterogeneous Processing of Multimedia Data by using OpenCL

In recent times, it has become possible to parallelize many multimedia applications using multicore platforms such as CPUs and GPUs. In this paper, we propose a parallel processing approach for a multimedia application by using both the CPU and GPU. Instead of distributing the parallelizable workload to either the CPU or GPU, we distribute the […]

Implementing Computer Vision Functions with OpenCL on the Qualcomm Adreno 420

Computer vision algorithms are becoming increasingly important in mobile, embedded, and wearable devices and applications. These compute-intensive workloads are challenging to implement with good performance and power-efficiency. In many applications, implementing critical portions of computer vision workloads on a general-purpose graphics processing unit (GPU) is an attractive solution. Qualcomm enables programming of the Adreno GPU […]

OpenCL-Based Design of an FPGA Accelerator for Phase-Based Correspondence Matching

This paper proposes a Field Programmable Gate Array (FPGA) implementation of the stereo correspondence matching using Phase-Only Correlation (POC). The use of high-accuracy stereo correspondence matching based on POC makes it possible to measure accurate 3D shape of an object using stereo vision. The drawback of the POC-based approach is its high computational cost. To […]
