Implementing FPGA Design with the OpenCL Standard

• Tags: GPU graphics OpenCL

Altera has released a white paper on implementing FPGA design with OpenCL. Utilizing the Khronos Group’s OpenCL standard on an FPGA may offer significantly higher performance and at much lower power than is available today from hardware architectures such as CPUs, graphics processing units (GPUs), and digital signal processing (DSP) units. In addition, an FPGA-based heterogeneous system (CPU + FPGA) using the OpenCL standard has a significant time-to-market advantage compared to traditional FPGA development using lower level hardware description languages (HDLs) such as Verilog or VHDL.Read More
