Architectural and physical design challenges for one-million gate FPGAs and beyond

Jonathan Rose, Dwight Hill
1997 Proceedings of the 1997 ACM fifth international symposium on Field-programmable gate arrays - FPGA '97  
We feel that current architectures will not extend directly to this scale because: they do not handle routing delays effectively; they require excessive compile/place/route times; and because they do not  ...  Process technology advances tell us that the one-million gate Field-Programmable Gate Array (FPGA) will soon be here, and larger devices shortly after that.  ...  Routing within a section would be simplified by keeping the system regular, supporting bus routing by enabling parallel signals to turn corners and retain their parallel organization (as was done in ORCA  ...

Effect of the prefabricated routing track distribution on FPGA area-efficiency

V. Betz, J. Rose
1998 IEEE Transactions on Very Large Scale Integration (vlsi) Systems  
A long-standing open question for both FPGAs and channelled gate arrays is whether or not some uneven distribution of routing tracks across the chip would lead to an area benefit.  ...  For example, many circuit designers intuitively believe that most congestion occurs near the center of a chip, and hence expect that having wider routing channels near the chip center would be beneficial  ...  Since standard cell and sea-of-gates Mask-Programmed Gate Array (MPGA) designs often have some channels wider than others, they expect that FPGA-based designs would also benefit from a mix of wide and  ...
