Due to advancing technology, genetic sequencing has become cheaper over the years. This has caused the demand for computational power to grow even faster than Moore's law. To remedy this problem, we analyzed low-cost hardware solutions to parallelize the computational part of the genetic sequencing. We proposed a novel method for calculating the...

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...

Many fields need high performance time measurements, including Single-Photon Avalanche Diode (SPAD) cameras, Positron Emission Tomography (PET) systems, and other time-of-flight systems. These measurements are often performed by means of time-to-digital converters, that for these applications, require high resolution, accuracy, and throughput....

Graphics on a computer are often handled by a graphics pipeline. Rasterization is an important stage in this pipeline. It converts the basic elements of computer graphics, triangles, into the basic elements of a screen, pixels. This stage is very computation intensive and has a large memory footprint. The last decade a lot of research has been...

Bus based interconnects are commonly used to connect Intellectual Properties (IPs) on System-on-Chip (SoC). However, as the number of high performance IPs with large communication requirements in a Multi Processor SoC (MPSoC) increases, the bus interconnects become a communication bottleneck. To overcome this limitation, the bus based...

De Jong, M.D. (author)
This thesis describes FPGA-accelerated Monte-Carlo integration using adaptive stratified sampling. Monte-Carlo integration can be used to determine the value of integrals that have no closed form solution. In this work, the FPGA-accelerated design is used to determine the price of different types of financial options. The considered options are...

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...

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...

Unbalanced transaction can lead to addition and deletions in genes, which can be an indication of tumor cells. This is measured with array Comparative Genomic Hybridization. To find co-occurring aberrations in DNA, an algorithm was designed. However the execution takes days to find these DNA aberrations. This thesis proposes a partial FPGA based...

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...

Today’s production processes are more and more optimized to be competitive. The production demands are increased for speed and quality. These increased demands do not pass the roll shops in the steel industry. In the roll shop periodically the rolls from the rolling mill are checked for imperfections. The imperfections are detected by special...

Neuroscientific experiments often require large amounts of computational power to achieve an efficient research process. Speeding up neuron models, used in such experiments, facilitates faster testing of scientific hypotheses and faster model refinement in order to better replicate biological-cell behavior. To be able to simulate realistic...

The speed gap between a processor realized in Semi-custom ASIC technology and a processor realized in FPGA technology is narrowing. In processor design, the approach is to define the microarchitecture of the processor and to design and implement it for executing an application domain. In this thesis, we have investigated the approach to design a...
