Deep Learning with FPGAs

The penetration of FPGAs into the DSP communication market is fuelled by the following factors – the growing requirements for processing speeds of the order of 10-100 billions of operations per second, the need for rapid prototyping and Software definable architectures. FPGAs are embedded in microcontrollers with the aim to build complex and low cost products that are reconfigurable. This has led to huge demand for developing complex embedded system based application on FPGAs. The Hardware-software co-simulation and debugging is one of the most important aspects of developing embedded applications on FPGAs. FPGAs provide low latency and flexible architecture for accelerating deep learning solutions. The primary aim of this course is to build practical knowledge on convolution neural network and other similar networks for FPGA implementation.
