New architectures for the switch box and connection block are proposed for use in an energy efficient field programmable gate array (FPGA) with bidirectional wiring. Power-hungry SRAMs are replaced by non-volatile nanocrystal floating gate (NCFG) devices that retain their state while the system power is off and do not need to be configured at boot up. The(More)
The operation of a novel unified memory device using two floatinggates is described through experimental characterization of a fabricated proofof-concept device and confirmed through simulation. The dynamic, nonvolatile, and concurrent modes of the device are described in detail. Simulations show that the device compares favorably to conventional memory(More)
