QUKU: A Fast Run Time Reconfigurable Platform for Image Edge Detection

  title={QUKU: A Fast Run Time Reconfigurable Platform for Image Edge Detection},
  author={Sunil Shukla and Neil W. Bergmann and J{\"u}rgen Becker},
To fill the gap between increasing demand for reconfigurability and performance efficiency, CGRAs are seen to be an emerging platform. In this paper, a new architecture, QUKU, is described which uses a coarse-grained reconfigurable PE array (CGRA) overlaid on an FPGA. The low-speed reconfigurability of the FPGA is used to optimize the CGRA for different applications, whilst the high-speed CGRA reconfiguration is used within an application for operator re-use. We will demonstrate the dynamic… CONTINUE READING
