*2.b Synchronized operation between packets of each stream which is essential for processing multiple togather.*
We try to read each row in the image as a pack of 3 streams process it in 2 seperate block and return the output as an array.

This would mean we can store real-time data in frames and feed them continously from our python code. The processing blocks consists of a 2x2 array each and they are the convolution weights added to our stream of data and we return the output.
![Convolution on streaming row]( "Convolution on streaming row")
(DMA1 + DMA2) streams are processed in PU1 and (DMA2 + DMA3) streams in PU2. However becuase Robert's convolution algorithm needs data to be processed in a 2x2 array they must enter and get processed in Synchronized manner.

On the higher level the interaction between CPU and FPGA looks like the schematic shown above.
We use two blocks to process the streams but that doesnot mean we use one thread we basically dont wait for Nth set of data to be processed before we can start processing N+1 data. Since the convolution algorithm does not wait for processing it can start to read and process the next N+1 set of data from the stream as soon as Nth set has been read. It looks something like this due to loop unrolling and leads to parallel processing.
