HiPEAC Internship Report – Power profiling a custom application on VCS-1
We’ve enjoyed another successful internship as part of the HiPEAC internship program. This year we had Burak Topçu working with us:
I saw the Beyond TULIPP internship program assigned by Sundance on the HiPEAC job facilities page. Then, I sent a proposal to Sundance by introducing myself, including my background knowledge and explaining my plans for the internship process. Afterwards, we agreed on the internship, and I have started preliminary work of the internship. In this preliminary work, I learnt the Zynq Ultrascale+ chips in terms of architectural manner, unified coding environment of Vitis HLS and some guidelines to optimize the applications. Then, I started the internship on 1st July and completed my internship on 30th October. I explain what I did in the internship duration in the remaining sections of this report.
