About the Edition

The design and layout of Field-Programmable Gate Arrays (FPGAs) is a time-consuming process that is currently performed manually. This work investigates two issues faced when automating this task. First, an accurate comparison of layout area between manually and automatically-generated layouts is performed. For the single commercial architecture considered, this work found that the area of an automatically-generated layout is only 36% larger than that needed for a manual layout. The second half of this work focused on the steps needed to implement a complete FPGA using automatic layout tools. New tools that aid the design and verification of an FPGA are presented and an FPGA created with those tools was verified in simulation and then sent for fabrication. This indicates that automatic layout tools can be used to design complete FPGAs in a fraction of the time required for manual design.

Creating a new FPGA is a challenging undertaking because of the significant effort that must be spent on circuit design, layout and verification. It currently takes approximately 50 to person years from architecture definition to tape-out for a new FPGA family.

Creating a new FPGA is a challenging undertaking because of the significant effort that must be spent on circuit design, layout and verification. It currently takes approximately 50 to person years from architecture definition to tape-out for a new FPGA family. Such a lengthy development time is necessary because the process is primarily done manually.

It currently takes approximately 50 to person years from architecture definition to tape-out for a new FPGA family. Clive "Max" Maxfield renowned author, columnist, and editor of PL DesignLine has selected the very best FPGA design material from the Newnes portfolio and has compiled it into this volume.

The result is a book covering the gamut of FPGA design from design fundamentals to optimized layout techniques with a strong pragmatic emphasis. The first revolves around the FPGA itself: i.e., choosing the right FPGA for the design needs, and maximizing the use of FPGA resources.

The second dimension has to do with FPGA-PCB co-design, which involves ensuring that pin-assignment is optimized for the PCB. This paper focuses on the first challenge—designing high-quality FPGA-based.

FPGA hardware designers face several challenges due to the growing size and complexity of FPGA devices and need the right tools and methodology to complete their designs. The Synopsys FPGA Platform is a design, verification and debug solution that provides developers with a methodology to successfully find and fix bugs earlier in the design cycle.

Automated FPGA Verification and Debugging we ensure that the layout of the original design is preserved as much as possible by automatically generating placement constraints, and.

FPGA implementation verification. As FPGAs have become larger and more complex, their design and functional verification has tended toward that of Automated FPGA design ASIC. This trend is now extending into the area of implementation verification, driven by the advanced nature of the modern FPGA design.

I'm an FPGA design engineer and I usually only do very initial and basic testing using simple test benches written in Verilog (I write RTL in Verilog too). I've realized that improving myself in the direction of verification, or even familiarizing myself with the process of verifying a design properly (self-checking TB, BFMs, etc.) can help me.

Field Programmable Gate Array. An FPGA is a programmable device that uses prebuilt logic blocks and programmable routing resources. An FPGA can be configured to implement the functionality comparable to custom hardware without requiring additional fabrication steps.

Hardware simulations on FPGAs run more than three orders of magnitude faster than software simulations, but with much lower visibility into the circuit under test. To expedite the task of debugging and specification verification, we introduce a framework that automates many of the tedious aspects of the process.

ASIC/VLSI engineering is a very conservative field. The vast majority of scripts used to automate ASIC design and verification were written in Perl, and still remain so.

Perl is still the dominant scripting language for ASIC design automation. Traditional latch-up detection occurs late in the design flow, requiring costly and time-consuming late-stage physical layout changes.

By running automated topology-based latch-up verification on the schematic netlist during early design phases, designers can quickly identify sensitive latch-up scenarios.

FPGA and ASIC hardware accelerators have relatively limited memory, I/O bandwidths, and computing resources compared with GPU-based accelerators. However, they can achieve at least moderate performance with lower power consumption [62]. The throughput of ASIC design can be improved by customizing memory hierarchy and assigning dedicated.
