The Meshotron: A Network of Specialized Hardware Units for 3-D Digital Waveguide Mesh Acoustic Model Parallelization
This paper presents the project of a computing network – the “Meshotron” – specifically designed for large-scale parallelisation of three-dimensional Digital Waveguide Mesh (3D DWM) room acoustic models. It discusses the motivation of the project, its advantages and the architecture envisaged for the application-specific hardware (ASH) units to form the network. The initial stages involve the development of a software prototype based on the rectangular mesh topology, using appropriate hardware simulation tools, and the design and test of FPGA-based scattering units for air and boundary nodes.
