This paper presents an architecture for a reconfigurable device that is specifically optimized for floating-point applications. Fine-grained units are used for implementing control logic and bit-oriented operations, while parameterized and reconfigurable word-based coarse-grained units incorporating word-oriented lookup tables and floating-point operations are used to implement datapaths. In order to facilitate comparison with existing FPGA devices, the virtual embedded block scheme is proposed… CONTINUE READING
