Current generation DNNs, such as AlexNet and VGG, rely on dense floating-point
matrix multiplication (GEMM) which maps well to the capabilities of GPUs, with their regular parallelism and high Tflops.
Block-floating point (BFP) arithmetic is a way of emulating floating-point
arithmetic by using fixed-point.
Fractional or floating-point
arithmetic is one of the key areas in adaptive filters, dealing not with the filter coefficients in factional values but also the intermediate arithmetic operations.
Additionally, we often need a mathematic modeling method to analyze a patient's health data, which may utilize complex functions taking floating-point
numbers as input.
The Arria 10 SoCs offer a processor with rich feature set of embedded peripherals, hardened floating-point
variable-precision digital signal processing blocks, high-speed transceivers, hard memory controllers, Secure boot capability, using Elliptic Curve Digital Signature Algorithm and Advanced Encryption Standard, and protocol intellectual property controllers all in a single highly integrated package.
The integrated digital signal processing engine and floating-point
core of the processor enable a multitude of high performance applications, such as signal conditioning and sensor processing, while maintaining performance headroom for product differentiation.
Compatible with the Vision P5 DSP, this newest vision DSP offers an optional 32-way SIMD vector floating-point
unit that includes the IEEE half precision standard (FP16).
Powered by a dual-core CPU with a floating-point
unit (FPU), the two-bay NAS is designed for home and personal users.
The prototype of this new supercomputer will show performance at 10 to 18 degrees of computational floating-point
operations per second.
