Application-Specific Mesh-based Heterogeneous FPGA by Husain Parvez

By Husain Parvez

Low quantity construction of FPGA-based items is sort of potent and good value simply because they're effortless to layout and application within the shortest period of time. The regularly occurring reconfigurable assets in an FPGA could be programmed to execute a wide selection of purposes at collectively specific occasions. besides the fact that, the pliability of FPGAs makes them a lot higher, slower, and extra strength eating than their counterpart ASICs. accordingly, FPGAs are improper for functions requiring excessive quantity construction, excessive functionality or low energy consumption.

This ebook offers a brand new exploration surroundings for mesh-based, heterogeneous FPGA architectures. It describes state of the art strategies for decreasing region specifications in FPGA architectures, which additionally elevate functionality and allow aid in strength required. assurance makes a speciality of relief of FPGA zone through introducing heterogeneous hard-blocks (such as multipliers, adders and so on) in FPGAs, and by way of designing software particular FPGAs. computerized FPGA structure new release strategies are hired to diminish non-recurring engineering (NRE) expenditures and time-to-market of application-specific, heterogeneous FPGA architectures.

  • Presents a brand new exploration setting for mesh-based, heterogeneous FPGA architectures;
  • Describes state of the art suggestions for lowering zone standards in FPGA architectures;
  • Enables relief in strength required and raise in performance.

Rapid consists of a linear array of functional units that are interconnected through a programmable segmented bus network. 2. , 1996] coarse-grained functional units and the bus interconnect are used to implement a data path circuit. The rapid datapath is usually divided into identical units, called as cells, that are replicated to form a complete datapath. 15. Each cell can contain hundreds of functional units ranging in complexity from simple general purpose register to multi-output booth-encoded multipliers.

However, the hard-blocks in the BLIF file are not required to be synthesized. So, the main aim of PARSER-1 is to remove hard-blocks from BLIF file in such a way that all the dependence between the hard-blocks and the remaining netlist is preserved. After synthesis and packing, PARSER-2 will add all the removed hard-blocks in the netlist. 5 shows five different modifications performed by PARSER-1 before removing hardblock instances from the BLIF file. These cases are described as below : 1. 5(a) shows a hard-block whose output pins are connected to the input pins of gates.

If the cost decreases (improves), the move is always accepted. If the cost increases, the move can still be accepted. The probability of accepting a move that increases the cost is high during the initial phase of the algorithm. But this probability decreases gradually, until in the final phase only those moves are accepted which decrease the cost. Routing : Once the instances of a netlist are placed on FPGA, connections between different instances are routed using the available routing resources.
