Plastic Cell Architecture: Towards Reconfigurable Computing for General-Purpose

  title={Plastic Cell Architecture: Towards Reconfigurable Computing for General-Purpose},
  author={Kouichi Nagami and Kiyoshi Oguri and Tsunemichi Shiozawa and Hideyuki Ito and Ryusuke Konishi},
We propose a new architectural reference based on programmable logic devices that we call Plastic Cell Architecture (PCA). PCA is a reference for implementing a mechanism of a fully autonomous recon gurability, which is also introduced in this paper. This recon gurability is a further step toward general-purpose recon gurable computing, introducing variableand programmable-grain parallelism to wired logic computing. The PCA architecture is a fusion of an SRAMbased FPGA and cellular automata… CONTINUE READING
