Image De-convolution for Fluorescence Microscopy

Purpose

FPGA versus CPU in medical image processing


Feature

PFP is used as a co-processing unit in a PC

.


  • Compared to a standard PC including Intel Pentium M 1.73Ghz and 1Go RAM,  the same deconvolution algorithm runs 34X less time on FPGA accelerator card. 
  • For a 512*512*16 colored image and 10 algorithm iterations :
    Execution time on PC = 305 seconds
    Execution time on accelerator card = 9 seconds
