Paper Abstract

This paper investigates the concept of transformable computing as a means for achieving cost- effective high-performance computing. In this preliminary work we will provide performance figures for some representative DSP problems, specifically linear convolution and Fourier transforms. Our implementations are based on the highly parallel approach. We present an experimental setup in which an EVC1-s board is interfaced with a 40Mhz Sparc 10 SunStation. We show that using FPGA-based board provides significant speedups for the aforementioned problems over using the Sparc 10 processor alone. More importantly, it is shown that speedup will in general improve as the number of scheduled tasks increases.
