- [Match 3rd - 2009] Initial RTL benchmark downloads from Imperial College added
GroundHog 2009 is a benchmark suite for reconfigurable architectures in the mobile domain. The benchmark suite can be downloaded from
The benchmark suite includes designs described in a high-level format that is non-synthesizable. For this reason, this project on OpenCores is a space where individuals in the community can release synthesizable (and compilable) versions of their implementations of the 6 benchmarks.
The benchmarks are:
GH09.B.1 - Port expander and keypad controller
GH09.B.2 - Glue Logic
GH09.B.3 - AES encryption cypher
GH09.B.4 - Data compression using Lempel-Ziv
GH09.B.5 - Bridge chip
GH09.B.6 - 2D convolution
Hardware test bench and example RTL for the design cases can be found at
To view synthesizable designs check the download section.
Also, to contribute your designs to the repository please contact us.
