I want to accelerate CIFAR-10 dataset on a Virtex 5 FPGA. I think I have built correctly the CNN on VHDL. My question is how I load the dataset on the FPGA? Or should I send the images through another device/laptop on the FPGA? I thought also of using SPI/I2C/UART/Ethernet but seems this makes a bottleneck? Right? Also, could it be better to store the dataset to a HDD and send them directly without the need of using a laptop? Any idea? I have found a few links, however I need speed, as you can understand. Can I use external RAM to load there batch data of the CIFAR-10?
