FPGAs offer a promising platform for the implementation of Artificial Neural Networks (ANNs) and their training, combining the use of custom optimized hardware with low cost and fast development time. However, purely hardware realizations tend to focus on throughput, resorting to restrictions on applicable network topology or low-precision data representation, whereas flexible solutions allowing a wide variation of network parameters and training algorithms are usually restricted to software… CONTINUE READING
