2. The last two columns in the table are the speedup values of FPGA-based solution over the CPU-based solution (the original EM-GMM) and the GPU-based solution, respectively. The results showed that the FPGA-based solution generated rather accurate results and achieved a maximum of 517 times speedup over a CPU-based solution and 28 times speedup over a GPU-based solution. Characteristics To reach such high accelerations, it is necessary to use fixed-point arithmetic that saves hardware resources on the FPGA platform.

Experiments targeting Maxeler systems in this example showed that FPGA-based designs were more effective than the corresponding multi-core software versions. The speedups that were achieved exceeded 250 for the exhaustive algorithm and 60 for the genetic algorithm. 2 Presentation of Examples 55 texture modeling, the Gaussian copula is a widely used multivariate modeling tool. However, existing solutions failed to achieve satisfactory performance, and users had to tolerate high computational complexity and the related time cost.

This is because the mathematical model of the Gaussian copula, including either its CDF or the corresponding PDF, consists of plenty of time-consuming computation operations. In this example, Xiaomeng Huang et al. developed an optimized FPGA-based Gaussian copula PDF evaluation scheme, which was able to achieve both high computation efficiency and low resource cost. It is a fast Gaussian copula PDF evaluation engine capable of handling all the time-consuming computation operations in a fully pipelined manner.
