Efficient SIMD Vectorization for Hashing in OpenCL

Hashing is at the core of many efficient database operators such as hash-based joins and aggregations. Vectorization is a technique that uses Single Instruction Multiple Data (SIMD) instructions to process multiple data elements at once. Applying vectorization to hash tables results in promising speedups for build and probe operations. However, vectorization typically requires intrinsics – […]

Pass a Pointer: Exploring Shared Virtual Memory Abstractions in OpenCL Tools for FPGAs

Heterogeneous CPU-FPGA systems are gaining momentum in the embedded systems sector and in the data center market. While the programming abstractions for implementing the data transfer between CPU and FPGA (and vice versa) that are available in today’s commercial programming tools are well-suited for certain types of applications, the CPU-FPGA communication for applications that share […]

Extending OmpSs for OpenCL kernel co-execution in heterogeneous systems

Heterogeneous systems have a very high potential performance but present difficulties in their programming. OmpSs is a well known framework for task based parallel applications, which is an interesting tool to simplify the programming of these systems. However, it does not support the co-execution of a single OpenCL kernel instance on several compute devices. To […]

Acceleration of Cellular Automata through Parallel Computing with OpenCL

Cellular Automata (CA) have its origins in the work of Von Neumann and, since then, have become an important research topic with a wide range of applications, ranging from DNA sequencing to ecological dynamics. One aspect that may be of interest during a CA simulation is the evolution in the number of individuals of each […]

FPGA-Accelerated Image Processing Using High Level Synthesis with OpenCL

High Level Synthesis (HLS) is a new method for developing applications for use on FPGAs. Instead of the classic approach using a Hardware Descriptive Language (HDL), a high level programming language can be used. HLS has many perks, including high level debugging and simulation of the system being developed. This shortens the development time which […]

High Performance Streaming Smith-Waterman Implementation with Implicit Synchronization on Intel FPGA using OpenCL

The Smith-Waterman algorithm is widely used in bioinformatics and is often used as a benchmark of FPGA performance. Here we present our highly optimized SmithWaterman implementation on Intel FPGAs using OpenCL. Our implementation is both faster and more efficient than other current Smith-Waterman implementations, obtaining a theoretical performance of 214 GCUPS. Moreover, due to the […]

Compiling and Optimizing OpenMP 4.X Programs to OpenCL and SPIR

Given their massively parallel computing capabilities heterogeneous architectures comprised of CPUs and accelerators have been increasingly used to speed-up scientific and engineering applications. Nevertheless, programming such architectures is a challenging task for most non-expert programmers as typical accelerator programming languages (e.g. CUDA and OpenCL) demand a thoroughly understanding of the underlying hardware to enable an […]

Launch-time Optimization of OpenCL Kernels

OpenCL kernels are compiled first before kernel arguments and launch geometry are provided later at launch time. Although some of these values remain constant during execution, the compiler is unable to optimize for them since it has no access to them. We propose and implement a novel approach that identifies such arguments, geometry, and optimizations […]

PCIeHLS: an OpenCL HLS framework

One of the goals of high level synthesis (HLS) is to make designing hardware accelerators running on FPGAs accessible to developers with a software background (usually implying developers with little foundations in hardware design). While high level synthesis generates accelerator kernels, it generally does not assist with integrating the generated kernels into a system. In […]
