"A study of implementation methods for the Sobel filter on reconfigurable computing systems"
Taratuta E.E.

The main motivation is the growing popularity of reconfigurable FPGAs in the field of high-performance computing as well as the need to study the features of writing efficient software using the Altera SDK for OpenCL tool, which allows one to implement applications for FPGA using the C++ programming language and the OpenCL standard. The paper discusses the features of the OpenCL software model and presents a study of the performance and features of various Sobel filter implementations using the mentioned tool.

Keywords: FPGA, OpenCL, Sobel filter, Altera OpenCL SDK
