In order to pose a successful challenge to conventional processor architectures, reconfigurable computing systems must achieve significantly better performance than conventional programmable processors by both greatly reducing the number of clock cycles required to execute a wide range of applications and achieving high clock rates when implemented in… (More)
These keynote speeches discuss the following: Runtime Reconfiguration in Altera FPGAs - past, present, and future; Reconfigurable Architectures for Extreme Scale Computing.
Amalgam is a novel architecture for multifunction embedded systems. It integrates multiple reconfigurable and programmable processing resources (known as clusters) to achieve high-performance with low design effort on a variety of multimedia applications. The reconfigurable cluster (RClust) enables Amalgam to exploit the natural parallelism and operator… (More)
