Benchmarking and analysis of the SRC-6E reconfigurable computing system /
This thesis evaluates the usefulness of the SRC-6E reconfigurable computing system for a radar signal processing application and documents the process of creating and importing VHDL code to configure the user definable logic on the SRC-6E. A false-target radar-imaging algorithm was chosen and implemented on the SRC-6E. Data from alternative computational approaches to the same problem are compared to determine the effectiveness of SRC-6E solution. The results show that the implementation of the algorithm does not provide an effective solution when executed on the SRC-6E. An evaluation of the SRC-6E difficulty of use is conducted, including a discussion of required skills, experience and development times. The algorithm test code and collected data are included as appendices.
