Coarse Grained Reconfigurable Array Based Architecture for Low Power Real Time Seizure Detection (2015)

Abstract There is increasing research and commercial interest in miniature on-body and implantable devices for continuous real-time biosignal monitoring. A key challenge in realizing this vision is in implementation of biosignal processing algorithms with acceptably low energy consumption. In this article, we investigate implementation of the REACT algorithm for real-time epileptic seizure detection on a Coarse Grained Reconfigurable Array (CGRA) based architecture. Computationally expensive biosignal processing tasks are offloaded from a conventional Digital Signal Processor (DSP) to the CGRA. The CGRA is designed to support low power biosignal processing by means of a systolic architecture, flexible interconnect and low resource usage. The CGRA architecture is shown to provide 38% and 60% improvements in energy consumption and in performance, respectively, for the REACT system, without the use of voltage scaling or increased clock frequency.
