Hardware implementation and design space exploration for Wave 2D and Jacobi 2D stencil computations
MetadataShow full item record
Hardware accelerators are highly optimized functional blocks designed to perform specific tasks from the CPU at a higher performance. We developed a hardware accelerator for Jacobi 2D and Wave 2D algorithms, two computations with a stencil pattern. They are used in a lot of scientific applications in the field of acoustics, electro magnetics and Fluid dynamics. These problems have large problem sizes, memory limitations and bandwidth constraints that result in long run times on large problems. Hence, an approach which increases the performance of these problems that reduces bandwidth requirement ...
