The need for large local FPGA-accessible memories

Spaanenburg, Henk A.E.; Thompson, J; Abraham, V; Spaanenburg, Lambert LU and Fang, Wen Hai LU (2006) IEEE International Symposium on Circuits and Systems, ISCAS 2006 In Proceedings ISCAS p.1957-1960
Abstract
Advanced Principles Group (APG) has developed a Reconfigurable Computing Board (RCB) based on the Xilinx Virtex-II Pro FPGA family, potentially capable of 1.5 - 2.0 TeraOps of compute power, 100 Gbps I/O on front panel, 4 Gbps I/O on backplane, as well as containing more than 4 GBytes of on-board memory. Computationally complex applications such as Software-Defined Radio, Synthetic Aperture Radar, Hyper-Spectral Imaging and Cellular Neural Networks drive similar wide bandwidths and therefore require super-computing I/O and signal processing densities far exceeding the capabilities of current and future microprocessor-based system technology. We illustrate how such applications benefit from the large amount of local FPGA-accessible memory... (More)
