and utilization in field-programmable logic requires new FPGA architectures. Problems with existing architectures include low resource utilization, routing congestion, high interconnect delay, and insufficient I/O connections. At Northeastern University, we have developed a novel three-dimensional FPGA architecture called Rothko, aimed at solving some of these problems. The technology underlying Rothko allows designers to stack two-dimensional CMOS circuits to build 3D VLSI structures. Vertical… CONTINUE READING
