Impulse Accelerated Technologies, Inc. will conduct live demonstrations of its C-to-FPGA solutions at Embedded World 2008, which takes place in Nuremberg, Germany, from February 26 through 28. At the show, two on-chip PowerPC processors are combined with Impulse C(tm) acceleration modules to decode and filter streaming video images. The demonstration highlights the advanced features of Virtex-4 FX FPGAs as well as showing how software-to-hardware design methods can create accelerated, single-chip systems without the need for hardware design methods.
Impulse will also demonstrate how its C-to-FPGA tools have been used to create an accelerated DSP algorithm running on the MicroBlaze v7 soft processor. For this demonstration, Impulse C was used to offload a performance-critical DSP function for an overall acceleration of over 300X when compared to the software-only implementation, with no hardware-level programming required.
Impulse C-to-FPGA solutions will also present two conference papers at Embedded World 2008:
- Accelerating System Performance with FPGA-centric Hybrid Multi-Processing
February 26, 16.00 – 16.30
- C-Language Techniques for FPGA Acceleration of Embedded Software
February 26, 10.00 – 11.00
