Rapid increases in transistor density, clock speeds and competition with custom ICs have escalated the demand for aggressive solutions to battle rising operating temperatures in programmable fabrics. In this work, we make several key contributions to temperature management in FPGAs. We develop a novel and robust simulation framework exploring adaptive(More)
The increase in functional complexity and performance requirements of reconfigurable fabrics has necessitated the early estimation of power distribution to explore power aware architectures and design techniques. In this work, we make several contributions to interconnect power estimation in FPGAs. First we present a probabilistic methodology that uses(More)
Increasing transistor densities, rising popularity in mobile applications and migration towards eco-friendly computing systems have made power dissipation a key FPGA design issue. To meet stringent budgets, system architects need accurate estimates of power distribution at various design stages. In this work, we make several key contributions to FPGA(More)

As a result of our research so far, our placement tool achieved temperature reductions of over 10degC while the adaptive FPGA architectures generate timely responses to bring down temperature by about 14degC. Since routing accounts for a bulk of the power generated, exploiting the temporal and spatial variation in interconnect utilization to minimize their(More)
