FPGA World Conference 2015
Stockholm 8 September and Copenhagen 10 September
The Conference is an international forum for researchers (ACM), engineers, teachers and students/hackers. Complex heterogeneous SW/HW embedded systems, products, education&industrial cases and more based on FPGA technology. FPGA world sponsors the academic&industrial tracks, lunches, premises, administrations etc. from sponsors and exhibitors.
Keynote Speaker 2015:
Ahmed Hemani, Professor, Dept. of Electronics and Embedded Systems, School of ICT, KTH
Next Generation Massively Parallel VLSI Architectures and Design Methods
ITRS for the mobile category has challenged the VLSI Design community to come up with solutions by 2020 to provide 1000X improvement in performance with 120% increase in power budget and no increase in the design team size to cope with a 10X increase in design complexity. We propose a solution based on Coarse Grain Reconfigurable Fabric for computation and storage called DRRA – Dynamically Reconfigurable Resource Array. This fabric provides a near ASIC performance and yet retains programmability. This fabric enables dataflow graphs along with their control to be implemented in arbitrary degree of parallelism in a true hardware fashion. The DRRA fabric also comes with a novel System-level to GDSII design flow based on a concept called SiLego. SiLego is based on a grid based design and use of large grain building blocks called SiLego instead of the prevalent standard cells. The SiLego blocks snap fit to compose a GDSII macro and provide a predictable micro-architecture level physical design target to empower true high-level and system-level syntheses.
