Moore's Law states that the number of transistors on a device doubles every two years; however, it is often (mis)quoted based on its impact on CPU performance. This important corollary of Moore's Law states that improved clock frequency plus improved architecture yields a doubling of CPU performance every 18 months. This paper examines the impact of Moore's Law on the peak floating-point performance of FPGAs. Performance trends for individual operations are analyzed as well as the performance… Expand
