How to Accelerate an Image Upscaling CNN on FPGA Using HLS

The process of generating a higher resolution image from a low resolution image, requires identifying the missing pixels. This filling-in of the “pixel gaps” has been addressed by various machine learning methods. From the variety of methods, convolutional neural networks stand out, due to their reusability and their small number of parameters. Taking advantage of […]

My colleagues Ioana Catalina Cristea and Dragos Dospinescu have created a novel approach in co-emulation, validated with leading FPGA platform. It is called OFC (Open-source Framework for Co-emulation). They have put a significant effort in getting this framework out there to the public and this effort was rewarded by receiving the third place Stuart Sutherland […]
