Abstract
In this article we compare a scalable FPGA-based hardware accelerator for the emulation of Self-Organizing Feature Maps (SOMs) with a multi-threaded software implementation on a state-of-the-art multi-core microprocessor. After discussing the mapping of SOMs to the reconfigurable digital hardware implementation, we present how the modular system architecture can be flexibly adapted to various application datasets as well as to variants of SOMs like Conscience SOM. Hyperspectral image processing is used as a benchmark scenario for the comparison of our FPGA-based hardware accelerator and state-of-the-art multi-core microprocessors. The hardware costs, power consumption, and scalability of the FPGA based accelerator using Xilinx Virtex-4 FPGAs are discussed. For the real-world datasets used here, which require large SOMs, a speedup and energy reduction of one order of magnitude is achieved.
