Accelerated data processing used to be dominated by SoCs with GPUs in the embedded segment. Recently, an exciting combination of SoC with FPGA became available from both major FPGA vendors. In this talk, Marek will explain the pros and cons of using the embedded FPGA instead of the GPU for computationaly-heavy tasks which cannot be handled by the CPU. Since communicating with the FPGA and transporting data between the FPGA and memory requires a non-trivial software infrastructure, which can introduce unexpected performance surprises, different approaches to this task will be explained. In the end, Marek will present the possibility of accelerating OpenCL kernels on the FPGA.
