PAI Reconfigurable systems for biomedical applications

Keywords : FPGA, floating-point, biomedical engineering.

Participants : F. de Dinechin, J. Detrey.

This PAI (programme d'actions intégrées) is headed by F. de Dinechin and O. Cret from Technical University of Cluj-Napoca in Romania. It also involves T. Risset and A. Plesco from the INRIA Compsys team-project in Lyon. Its purpose is to use FPGAs to accelerate the computation of the magnetic field produced by a set of coils. The Cluj-Napoca team provides the biomedical expertise, the initial floating-point code, the computing platform and general FPGA expertise. Arénaire contributes the arithmetic aspects, in particular specializing and fusing arithmetic operators, and error analysis. Compsys brings in expertise in automatic parallelization.
