A MedTech West seminar: Using FPGA technology and heterogeneous designs to accelerate image analysis and microwave applications

Welcome to a seminar with Sven Holmquist, CEO, Synective Labs. This presentation and follow-up discussion will cover the subject of acceleration. Synective Labs has worked within the acceleration niche for more than 10 years and has accelerated algorithms by optimization and the use of FPGA, GPU and heterogeneous designs in many different domains. By implementing algorithms on FPGAs, the computational speed could increase 10-100 times with decreased power consumption, leading... Read More
