Our group focuses on research, development and implementation of advanced digital signal processing algorithms, mainly in the fields of adaptive control and audio processing. We build on our experience with statistics, namely with the Bayesian approach to system identification and modeling, as well as the relevant fields of linear algebra.
Our target platforms are Field Programmable Gate Arrays (FPGAs) and Digital Signal Processors (DSPs). We use Matlab/Simulink to specify, model and verify algorithms that we later convert and synthesize to HW. As such specialized solutions are likely to be used in embedded systems, we also research features that result in extremely fast execution, use small amount of memory, small chip area or low power consumption. We achieve this both through designing new or modifying existing DSP algorithms, and using architectural properties such as dynamic reconfiguration of FPGAs...
EMC2 stand at HiPEAC 2016
HiPEAC 2016 conference took place in Prague, from 18 to 20 January 2016. Our team presented Xilinx SDSoC for acceleration of real-time Video Processing on custom ZYNQ modules at the 2nd EMC2 workshop and EMC2 Sundance booth.
Evaluation of Asymmetric Multiprocessing for Zynq System-on-Modules TE0720-02-2IF, TE0720-02-1CF, TE0720-02-1QFwith Carrier Board TE0701-05
The ARM Cortex A9 processor works together with the MicroBlaze processor, sharing the terminal and block ram. Both processors execute program from the same external DDR3 memory. The MicroBlaze processor is controlling 4 EdkDSP floating point accelerators. Each accelerator is organised as 8xSIMD reconfigurable data path, controlled by the PicoBlaze6 controller. Download the application note and the evaluation package.
