We are in half-way point of FPGA Summer Camp 2018

We have just finished second week of the FPGA Summer Camp 2018.

Today attendees presented their recent work and research in given topics. All projects are currently being developed in High Level Synthesis and present modern trends in applications where FPGAs are considered. Below you can find a list of projects:

  • Development of encoding engine for tANS data compression algorithm
  • Research on High Performance Computing – evaluation of LINPACK benchmarks on FPGAs
  • Video processing – drawing 3D objects, dynamically controlled by an IMU sensor on HDMI stream
  • Machine learning – neural network trained on MNIST data set inference
  • Analysis of hashing algorithms for cryptocurrency mining

Stay tuned for more details and results!

Wilga Symposium 2018 – DAQ in Digital J-PET and J-PET tomography project

It was a great pleasure for me to  attend Summer XLII-nd IEEE-SPIE Joint Symposium on Photonics, Web Engineering, Electronics for Astronomy and High Energy Physics Experiments presenting DAQ system of PET tomography devices developed by our team.

The conference takes place in Warsaw University of Technology Wilga Village, where attendees are accommodated. Quiet and full of nature terrains aids concentration and provides space to relax and chill out after scientific activities.

Digilent Design Contest 2018 – Finals

We had a great pleasure to participate in Digilent Design Contest 2018 finals. Competition was strong this year. Team from Serbia won first prize with their Deep Neural Network Hardware Accelerator.

On the podium was also one team from Romania and two from Poland.

Additive SynthesizerGdansk University of Technology
was granted with Digilent special prize for best usage of Digilent Instruments.

The event lasts for two days. On Saturday all finalists were presenting their work. On Sunday only few teams were invited for showing in details their solutions.

Most of submissions for the contest were diploma thesis or long-term projects conducted by experienced engineers.

Our approach for competition was to learn a lot and explore different approaches to Augmented Reality on SoC devices. In my opinion it is not necessarily important to win, but to compete, cooperate and learn state-of-the-art techniques and methods. We draw conclusions and got valuable feedback from community.
