The Implementation of a Real-Time Polyphase Filter
Computer Science - Distributed, Parallel, and Cluster Computing | Computer Science - Performance
In this article we study the suitability of dierent computational accelerators for the task of real-time data processing. The algorithm used for comparison is the polyphase filter, a standard tool in signal processing and a well established algorithm. We measure performance in FLOPs and execution time, which is a critical factor for real-time systems. For our real-time studies we have chosen a data rate of 6.5GB/s, which is the estimated data rate for a single channel on the SKAs Low Frequency Aperture Array. Our findings how that GPUs are the most likely candidate for real-time data processing. GPUs are better in both performance and power consumption.
