Abstract

A new reconfigurable architecture for biomedical applications is presented in this paper. The architecture targets frequently encountered functions in biomedical signal processing algorithms thereby replacing multiple dedicated accelerators and reports low gate count. An optimized implementation is achieved by mapping methodologies to functions and limiting the required memory leading directly to an overall minimization of gate count. The proposed architecture has a simple configuration scheme with special provision for handling feedback. The effectiveness of the architecture is demonstrated on an FPGA to show implementation schemes for multiple DSP functions. The architecture has gate count of ≈ 25k and an operating frequency of 46.9 MHz.
