Seems like an alternate approach would be to implement an alignment co-processor for the PC solution. My guess is there will need to be a PC around for doing all the housekeeping stuff anyway so adding a co-processor (in an FPGA?) could be a viable solution. Also, for the application to be 'killer' I'd want to see more than one section of the algorithm have a big (10x) gain vs SW only.

I'm really interested in biometrics at the moment - especially the cool stuff like face recognition - so if you are doing anything interesting in this area I'd love to hear about it...

David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
