This paper describes architectural enhancements in the Altera Stratix-V" FPGA architecture, built on a 28nm TSMC process, together with the data supporting those choices. Among the key features are time borrowing flip-flops, a doubling of the number of flip-flops per LUT compared to previous Stratix architectures, a simplified embedded 20kb dual-port RAM(More)
This paper describes architectural enhancements in the Altera Stratix? 10 HyperFlex? FPGA architecture, fabricated in the Intel 14nm FinFET process. Stratix 10 includes ubiquitous flip-flops in the routing to enable a high degree of pipelining. In contrast to the earlier architectural exploration of pipelining in pass-transistor based architectures, the(More)
Metastability is a phenomenon that can cause system failures in digital circuits. It may occur whenever signals are being transmitted across asynchronous or unrelated clock domains. The impact of metastability is increasing as process geometries shrink and supply voltages drop faster than transistor Vts. FPGA technologies are significantly affected since(More)
