Computational intelligence techniques, such as neural networks and fuzzy systems, are increasingly being employed in real-world applications. Accordingly, much design effort is going into developing customizable modules to meet required hardware/software specifications. We have prototyped a fuzzy neuron as a coarse-grained reconfigurable element to be used(More)
Logical Element (LE) is the basic building block of FPGA fabric or any re -configurable computing machines. Logical Element basically consists of look-up tables [1]. This paper shows a low power LE. The Low power is achieved by taking advantage of the commutative property of operations. This property will allow the data to be re organized such that there(More)
As the demand for higher performance computers for the processing of remote sensing science algorithms increases, the need to investigate new computing paradigms is justi ed. Field Programmable Gate Arrays enable the implementation of algorithms at the hardware gate level, leading to orders of magnitude performance increase over microprocessor based(More)
Power consumption is becoming a pressing issue in microprocessor design. Caches usually consume large part of the total power consumption of the chip. This paper introduces a novel low power cache architecture which is based on separating the in-coming cache data. Data is separated in two different banks: bank1 that mostly contains 1s data and bank0 that(More)

Simplification of the hardware part of digital design adds complicity to the software tools. In addition, the details of physical hardware wiring, timing, and models' specifications are being illuminated in so many new versions of CAD software. This adds challenges for new designers especially for those in educational institutes. The issue of complex design(More)
