Abstract
Several factors are spurring the development of hardware and software to accomplish high-speed processing for Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT). The two most prevalent architectures incorporate either an FPGA or a GPU. While GPUs have faster clock-speed the fact an FPGA can be pipelined makes a direct comparison based simply on system specifications difficult. We have undertaken an effort to make a direct comparison on the same host and consider the total time from digitization to rendering of the image. In addition to making quantitative comparisons between the two architectures we hope to derive useful benchmarks that will inform the design of an optimal high-speed processing system.
