Radar Processing: FPGAs or GPUs?

May 15, 2013 // By Altera
This white paper compares FPGAs and GPUs floating-point performance and design flows. In the last few years, GPUs have moved beyond graphics become powerful floating-point processing platforms, known as GP-GPUs, that offer high rates of peak FLOPs. FPGAs, traditionally used for fixed-point digital signal processing (DSP), now offer competing levels of floating-point processing, making them candidates for backend radar processing acceleration.
