Paper Abstract

This design case identifies generalizable features of a course-grained reconfigurable FPGA, Chameleon's reconfigurable platform. An FFT is used to identify typical design practices, problems, and solutions in targeting such a platform. This paper focuses on datapath mapping, separating it into functional design and placement of reconfigurable resources. In addition to exploring the design methodology, it analyzes numerical artifacts, demonstrates efficient packing of the data path, and highlights differences from ASIC design.
