VIP : An FPGA-based Processor for Image Processingand Neural

  title={VIP : An FPGA-based Processor for Image Processingand Neural},
  author={N. Cloutier and Eric Cosatto and Steven Pigeon and R{\'e}my Boyer and Patrice Y. Simard},
We present in this paper the architecture and implementation of the Virtual Image Processor (VIP) which is an SIMD multiprocessor build with large FPGAs. The SIMD architecture, together with a 2D torus connection topology, is well suited for image processing, pattern recognition and neural network algorithms. The VIP board can be programmed on-line at the logic level, allowing optimal hardware dedication to any given algorithm. Even with the last decades exponential growth in performance of… CONTINUE READING
