In theory, tools like VTR---a retargetable toolchain mapping circuits onto easily-described hypothetical FPGA architectures---could play a key role in the development of wildly innovative FPGA architectures. In practice, however, the experiments that one can conduct with these tools are severely limited by the ability of FPGA architects to produce reliable delay and area models---these depend on transistor-level design techniques which require a different set of skills. In this paper, we… CONTINUE READING
