SATTA: A Self-Adaptive Temperature-Based TDF Awareness Methodology for Dynamically Reconfigurable FPGAs
Stefano Di Carlo, Giulio Gambardella, Paolo Prinetto, Daniele Rolfo, Pascal Trotta
Article No.: 1
DOI: 10.1145/2659001

Dependability issues due to nonfunctional properties are emerging as a major cause of faults in modern digital systems. Effective countermeasures have to be developed to properly manage their critical timing effects. This article presents a...

A Tradeoff Analysis of FPGAs, GPUs, and Multicores for Sliding-Window Applications
Patrick Cooke, Jeremy Fowers, Greg Brown, Greg Stitt
Article No.: 2
DOI: 10.1145/2659000

The increasing usage of hardware accelerators such as Field-Programmable Gate Arrays (FPGAs) and Graphics Processing Units (GPUs) has significantly increased application design complexity. Such complexity results from a larger design space created...

The Cibola Flight Experiment
Heather Quinn, Diane Roussel-Dupre, Mike Caffrey, Paul Graham, Michael Wirthlin, Keith Morgan, Anthony Salazar, Tony Nelson, Will Howes, Eric Johnson, Jon Johnson, Brian Pratt, Nathan Rollins, Jim Krone
Article No.: 3
DOI: 10.1145/2629556

Over the past 15 years many organizations have researched the use of Static-Random Access Memory (SRAM)-based Field-Programmable Gate Arrays (FPGAs) in space. Although the components can provide a performance improvement over radiation-hardened...

Identification of Dynamic Circuit Specialization Opportunities in RTL Code
Tom Davidson, Elias Vansteenkiste, Karel Heyse, Karel Bruneel, Dirk Stroobandt
Article No.: 4
DOI: 10.1145/2629640

Dynamic Circuit Specialization (DCS) optimizes a Field-Programmable Gate Array (FPGA) design by assuming a set of its input signals are constant for a reasonable amount of time, leading to a smaller and faster FPGA circuit. When the signals...

Microkernel Architecture and Hardware Abstraction Layer of a Reliable Reconfigurable Real-Time Operating System (R3TOS)
Xabier Iturbe, Khaled Benkrid, Chuan Hong, Ali Ebrahim, Raul Torrego, Tughrul Arslan
Article No.: 5
DOI: 10.1145/2629639

This article presents a new solution for easing the development of reconfigurable applications using Field-Programable Gate Arrays (FPGAs). Namely, our Reliable Reconfigurable Real-Time Operating System (R3TOS) provides OS-like support for...
