To efficiently perform large matrix LU decomposition on FPGAs with limited local memory, the original algorithm needs to be blocked. In this paper, we propose a block LU decomposition algorithm for FPGAs, which is applicable for matrices of arbitrary size. We introduce a high performance hardware design, which mainly consists of a linear array of processing elements (PEs), to implement our block LU decomposition algorithm. A total of 36 PEs can be integrated into a Xilinx Virtex-5 xc5vlx330 FPGA on our self-designed PCI-Express card, reaching a sustained performance of 8.50 GFLOPS at 133 MHz, which outperforms previous work.
