Input Image Serialization and transfer to FPGA


In our research group, we are building a hardware ML accelerator which can efficiently do MAC operations. We need to provide serialized image inputs and hence, we are planning to use the Jetson TK1 development kit. Would I be able to do the following using the Jetson TK-1 kit -

(i) Choose an image from ImageNet database.
(ii) Read the image and serialize the pixels from 3-D to 1-D.
(iii) Create a stream of pixels to be fed as inputs to the FPGA board over PCIe.

Please help me out so that I can go ahead and order the right kit for my purpose. Thank you so much, and waiting for a quick reply.


Hi naman.mah1993,

What’s your main concern for tk1? item 3?
