Project #96: Heart Cell Model Acceleration using FPGAs

Back

Description:

This project will develop a VHDL model of heart cell to capture interactions of inputs of single and multiple sources. The intention is to quantity performance of FPGA based emulations vs GPU based emulations (previsously produced).

The model will be based on a current PhD project that has undertaken a fair bit of exploratory work on FPGAs. We intend to consolidate the existing work and also develop methids that capture diffusion at the cellular level. Implementing fast code for diffusion has been challenging and we think FPGAs offer significant advanatges. 

 

Outcome:

VHDL code base for RM heart cell model
