In the era of intelligence, the processing of a large amount of information and various intelligent applications need to rely on embedded devices. This trend has made machine learning algorithms play an increasingly important role. High-performance embedded computing is an effective means to solve the lack of computing power of embedded devices. Aiming at the problem that the calculation amount of new intelligent embedded applications based on machine learning technology is higher, the computing power of traditional embedded systems is difficult to meet their needs, this paper studies the parallel optimization and implementation techniques of convolutional neural networks in Parallella platform. The parallel optimization strategy of convolutional neural network on the clustering architecture processor of heterogeneous multi-core system is given. Then the high-performance implementation of convolutional neural network on Parallella platform is studied, and the function of convolutional neural network system is implemented. A set of performance evaluation methods for embedded parallel processors is proposed. From the application point of S698P, the eCos operating system is selected as the platform. The single-core mode and multi-core mode are compared on the simulator GRSIM, and the parallel performance evaluation is given. Experiments have shown that the efficiency of deep learning tasks is significantly improved compared to traditional parallel methods.
