While working on my current Master's thesis involving FPGA development, I found that it was hard to find readable examples of intrinsically two-dimensional filters that cannot be simply decomposed into a horizontal and a vertical convolution, in a way that e.g. a Gaussian filter or a Sobel filter can. Non-separable convolutions or filters require you … Continue reading A tutorial on non-separable 2D convolutions in Vivado HLS

# Simulating a 7-sided die from a 5-sided die

A.S.: Yep, apparently the singular of 'dice' is 'die'. ðŸ˜‰ A tricky programming task has been floating around the Internet which, as you might have guessed from my attempt at a pragmatic title, can be formalized as follows: Given a function that returns a uniformly random number between 1 and 5 (inclusive), design a function … Continue reading Simulating a 7-sided die from a 5-sided die
