Developing 4K Video Projects With FPGAs


Achieving higher resolution is a never-ending race for camera, TV and display manufacturers. After the emergence of 4K ultra high definition (Ultra HD) imaging in the market, it became the main standard for today’s multimedia products. 4K Ultra HD brings us bigger screens which give an immersive feeling. With this standard, the pixilation problem was solved in the big screens. 4K consumers ar... » read more

Deep Learning Hardware: FPGA vs. GPU


FPGAs or GPUs, that is the question. Since the popularity of using machine learning algorithms to extract and process the information from raw data, it has been a race between FPGA and GPU vendors to offer a HW platform that runs computationally intensive machine learning algorithms fast and efficiently. As Deep Learning has driven most of the advanced machine learning applications, it is r... » read more

Giving Cars A Bird’s-Eye View


Will the world be a better place in which to live by having autonomous cars driving around us? Or would it be unsafe and scary? Maybe someone was asking such a question even when the first steam-powered automobile capable of human transportation was built in 1769 [1]! As a person who likes driving, I wouldn’t like to have a ‘fully’ autonomous car, but I would like to get some assistanc... » read more

SoC FPGAs And HW/SW Co-Simulation


Heterogeneous System on Chip (SoC) devices like the Xilinx Zynq 7000 and Zynq UltraScale+ MPSoC combine a high-performance processing system (PS) with state-of-the-art programmable logic (PL). This combination allows a system to be architected to provide an optimally balanced single-chip software/hardware solution. However, all too often, the integration between the PS and PL takes place late... » read more
