A Case Study on Mapping Physical Simulation Algorithms to Heterogeneous Computing Platforms Utilizing Multi-core CPUs, Compute Accelerators and/or FPGAs

The speakers will discuss process and implementation strategies that enable the development of custom high-performance parallel computing solutions utilizing application specific hardware units in emerging architectures with multi-core CPUs, GPUs or FPGAs such as Xilinx's Zynq-7000 All Programmable SoC. Industry experts will present a practical algorithmic case study that serves to illustrate how an algorithm can be designed, partitioned and mapped to leverage the various computational elements of a heterogeneous architecture such as an All Programmable SoC.

1:30 p.m.2:20 p.m., Grand Ballroom E

Accelerating Multimedia Performance of Your ARM Processor with a Co-processor

Discussion topics for this session will include different methods for attaching accelerators to processors such as the ARM Cortex™-A9 and the tradeoffs for each use case. The latter portion of the session will explore the implementation of a real-world processing problem and how software tasks were accelerated with programmable logic accelerators tightly coupled to an ARM dual-core Cortex-A9 processing system.

2:30 p.m.3:20 p.m., Grand Ballroom B

Low-Power and Multi-core Processing: Optimizing Performance and Power with Programmable Systems

This session examines the integration of ARM processors, power domains, clock management, and co-processing offloading into FPGAs, which enables dramatic reduction in system power for high-performance applications. These techniques yield an order-of-magnitude less power, as computational tasks requiring tens or hundreds of watts with a general-purpose processor can be managed via an ARM Cortex-A9 processor system integrated with programmable logic.

3:30 p.m.4:20 p.m., Ballroom G

Algorithmic Acceleration of Processing Systems Using High-Level Synthesis

This paper discusses how system designers can rapidly build efficient, high-performance, customizable single-chip processing systems using Xilinx's latest All Programmable SoC technology.  

Exhibition Demos

Tuesday – Thursday, October 30 - November 1

  • Image Processing –Co-processing acceleration using Zynq-7000 All Programmable SoCs on iVeia's Breckenridge Platform.
  • Driver Assistance Solution – Zynq-7000 All Programmable SoC-based scalable, single-chip platform for driver assistance applications. Demonstration will showcase blind spot detection using Optical Flow.
