Introduction This is meant to be the first among a series of articles about image processing on FPGA. As it is usual on FPGA'er website, articles will include sample code and test benches. Basic concepts Let's define some common technology. A digital image is a frame. For starters, we will analyze grayscale images (as opposed … Continue reading Image processing on FPGA (1)
Keras is a high-level neural networks API, written in Python and capable of running on top of TensorFlow, CNTK, or Theano. I have recently installed Anaconda, TensorFlow, and Keras in my laptop PC as part of my Deep Machine Learning (DML) plan. I am reading two books in for my learning effort in parallel: MIT's Deep Learning book … Continue reading Keras and IMDB: Love, hate, sex and money
There have been many announcements about what would be the next generation Intel Xeon platform with integrated FPGA, also on this blog. Now Intel has finally announced that they are shipping their Xeon 6138P Gold with integrated FPGA accelerator to selected customers. The Intel Xeon 6138P includes ane Arria10 GX 1150 FPGA core, with up to … Continue reading Intel Xeon processor with FPGA – now shipping
by Bernard Murphy (*) I found a recent Wired article based on a TED talk on consciousness. The speaker drew a conclusion that consciousness was not something that could ever be captured in a machine and was a unique capability of living creatures (or at least humans). After reading an article on the the TED talk and … Continue reading Can AI be Conscious?
The first in the projects for the Cyclone V GX Starter kit will be a HW LED flasher. Although the design is very easy, it is a complete design including absolutely all the elements needed to achieve a reliable design with timing closure. For an introduction about the Cyclone V GX Starter kit evaluation board, … Continue reading Cyclone V GX Starter kit – HW LED flasher
by Bernard Murphy (*) Following up on their webinar on functional safety in FPGA-based designs, Synopsys have now published a white paper expanding on some of those topics. For those who didn’t get a chance to see the webinar this blog follows the white paper flow and is similar but not identical to my webinar … Continue reading Functional Safety Primer for FPGA White Paper
