The trend of computing faster and more efficiently has been a driver for the computing industry since its beginning. However, it is increasingly difficult to continue this trend because current CMOS technology cannot be down-scaled anymore due to physical restrictions. Consequently, to obtain the next major performance improvement, the focus is...

As database systems have shifted from disk-based to in-memory, and the scale of the database in big data analysis increases significantly, the workloads analyzing huge datasets are growing. Adopting FPGAs as hardware accelerators improves the flexibility, parallelism and power consumption versus CPU-only systems. The accelerators are also...

New interfaces to interconnect CPUs and accelerators at memory-class bandwidth pose new opportunities and challenges for the design of accelerators. This thesis studies one such accelerator, a decompressor for Parquet files compressed with the Snappy library. Our design targets reconfigurable logic (FPGAs) attached via the open coherent...

The multi-way hash join is one of the commonly used and time-consuming database operations. Many algorithms have been developed to accelerate this operation, some of which use accelerators such as field programmable gate arrays (FPGAs). However, most of the previous work was focused on computation-intensive operations such as (de)compression,...

A new class of accelerator interfaces has signi cant implications on system architecture. An order of magnitude more bandwidth forces us to reconsider FPGA design. OpenCAPI is a new interconnect standard that enables attaching FPGAs coherently to a high-bandwidth, low- latency interface. Keeping up with this bandwidth poses new challenges for...

Partial Discharges(PD) are commonly produced in defects within the insulation systems of high voltage equipment. These discharges are typically nanosecond current pulses in the amplitude range of milli-amperes. A long term exposure of the insulation system to these partial discharges accelerate the aging mechanisms that eventually lead to the...

In recent years due to the slow down of Moores Law and Dennard Scaling, alternative architectures are starting to be used instead of plain CPU implementations. These new architectures, such as FPGAs and GPUs, offer higher performance to power consumption ratio when compared with a CPU only implementation. But these new approaches have to...

Technolution B.V. is developing a custom Reduced Instruction Set Computer (RISC)-V based softcore for implementation on a Field Programmable Gate Array (FPGA). Previously, the softcore used the memory residing on the FPGA only, which is very limited in capacity and limits scaling. To solve this problem, a connection is made from the softcore to...

The trend of increasing performance by parallelism is followed by the adoption of heterogeneous systems. In order to allow more fine-tuned balancing between used thread- and instruction level parallelism, the heterogeneous ρ-VEX platform was developed. Pipelining has been a part of microprocessor development for decades to increase throughput of...

This thesis covers part of the development of the project "Augmented Reality in a Virtual Reality Setup". The covered part is about the communication between a Personal Computer (PC), and an FPGA (Field-Programmable Gate Array) and vice-versa. This communication is crucial for transfer of a camera stream from the FPGA to the PC and applying...
