The 2-dimensional (2D) Fast Fourier Transform (FFT) is a fundamental, computationally intensive function that is of broad relevance to distributed smart camera systems. In this paper, we develop a systematic method for improving the throughput of 2D-FFT implementations on field-programmable gate arrays (FPGAs). Our method is based on a novel loop unrolling(More)
Many varied domain experts use Lab VIEW as a graphical system design tool to implement DSP algorithms on myriad target architectures. In this paper, we introduce the latest LabVIEW FPGA compiler that enables domain experts with minimum hardware knowledge to quickly implement, deploy, and verify their domain-specific applications on FPGA hardware. We present(More)
In this paper, we propose a systemic approach for synthesizing field-programmable gate array (FPGA) implementations of fast Fourier transform (FFT) computations. Our approach considers both cost (in terms of FPGA resource requirements), and performance (in terms of throughput), and optimizes for both of these dimensions based on user-specified requirements.(More)
FPGA devices provide flexible, fast, and low-cost prototyping and production solutions for system design. However, as the design complexity continues to rise, the design and synthesis iterations become a labor intensive and time consuming ordeal. Consequently, it becomes imperative to raise the level of abstraction for FPGA designs, while providing insight(More)
