A Comparison Study on Implementing Optical Flow and Digital Communications on FPGAs and GPUs
John Bodily, Brent Nelson, Zhaoyi Wei, Dah-Jye Lee, Jeff Chase
Article No.: 6
DOI: 10.1145/1754386.1754387

FPGA devices have often found use as higher-performance alternatives to programmable processors for implementing computations. Applications successfully implemented on FPGAs typically contain high levels of parallelism and often use simple...

Titan-R: A Multigigabit Reconfigurable Combined Compression/Decompression Unit
Konstantinos Papadopoulos, Ioannis Papaefstathiou
Article No.: 7
DOI: 10.1145/1754386.1754388

Data compression techniques can alleviate bandwidth problems in even multigigabit networks and are especially useful when combined with encryption. This article demonstrates a reconfigurable hardware compressor/decompressor core, the Titan-R,...

SARFUM: Security Architecture for Remote FPGA Update and Monitoring
Benoît Badrignans, David Champagne, Reouven Elbaz, Catherine Gebotys, Lionel Torres
Article No.: 8
DOI: 10.1145/1754386.1754389

Remote update of hardware platforms or embedded systems is a convenient service enabled by Field Programmable Gate Array (FPGA)-based systems. This service is often essential in applications like space-based FPGA systems or set-top boxes. However,...

Improving the Robustness of Ring Oscillator TRNGs
Sang-Kyung Yoo, Deniz Karakoyunlu, Berk Birand, Berk Sunar
Article No.: 9
DOI: 10.1145/1754386.1754390

A ring oscillator-based true-random number generator design (Rings design) was introduced in Sunar et al. [2007]. The design was rigorously analyzed under a simple mathematical model and its performance characteristics were established. In this...

Security Primitives for Reconfigurable Hardware-Based Systems
Ted Huffmire, Timothy Levin, Thuy Nguyen, Cynthia Irvine, Brett Brotherton, Gang Wang, Timothy Sherwood, Ryan Kastner
Article No.: 10
DOI: 10.1145/1754386.1754391

Computing systems designed using reconfigurable hardware are increasingly composed using a number of different Intellectual Property (IP) cores, which are often provided by third-party vendors that may have different levels of trust. Unlike...
