In this paper, we present a circuit-level analysis of deep voltage-scaled FPGAs, which operate from full supply to sub-threshold voltages. The logic as well as the interconnect of the FPGA are modeled at the circuit level, and their relative contribution to the delay, power and energy of the FPGA are studied by means of circuit simulations.

The FinFET device has gained much traction in recent VLSI designs. In the FinFET device, the conduction channel is vertical, unlike a traditional bulk MOSFET, in which the conduction channel is planar. This yields several benefits, and as a consequence, it is expected that most VLSI designs will utilize FinFETs from the 20nm node and beyond. Despite the(More)
Field programmable gate arrays (FPGAs) are the implementation platform of choice when it comes to design flexibility. However, the high power consumption of FPGAs (which arises due to their flexible structure), make them less appealing for extreme low power applications. In this paper, we present a design of an FPGA look-up table (LUT), with the goal of(More)
—This paper presents the design and demonstration of a novel die-to-die interconnect system for deployment in system-in-package (SiP) applications with adjacent or stacked-die configurations. The interconnect system consists of miniature coaxial cables that are mounted to a standard Silicon substrate using an etched trench along the perimeter of the die.(More)
—This paper presents the design and prototyping of a Bartlett direction of arrival algorithm for an adaptive array antenna system using a Xilinx Virtex-5 FX70 FPGA. The algorithm was prototyped in both full custom VHDL hardware and in a Xilinx MicroBlaze soft processor to analyze the performance tradeoffs between hardware and software implementations. The(More)
