DSP blocks in modern FPGAs can be used for a wide range of arithmetic functions, offering increased performance while saving logic resources for other uses. They have evolved to better support a plethora of signal processing tasks, meaning that in other application domains they may be underutilised. The DSP48E1 primitives in new Xilinx devices support(More)
This paper presents a single precision floating point unit design for multiplication and addition/subtraction using FPGA DSP blocks. The design is based around the DSP48E1 primitive found in Virtex-6 and all 7-series FPGAs from Xilinx. Since the DSP48E1 can be dynamically configured and used for many of the sub-operations involved in IEEE 754-2008 binary32(More)
—SRAM-based FPGAs are becoming increasingly attractive for use in space applications due to their reconfigurability and signal processing capabilities, as well as their increasing speed and capacity. Traditional SRAM-based FPGAs, however, are highly sensitive to the ionizing radiation environment in space, making them prone to radiation-induced memory(More)
