4 FPGA Computing Standard Definition – A reconfigurable computer is a device which computes by using post-fabrication spatial components of compute elements. [Dehon] FPGA implementation of a processor core to run a program is excluded – not spatial mapping of problem. ASIC implementations excluded – not postfabrication programmable. The definition restricts RC to mapping to fine-grained

Unformatted text preview: devices (such as FPGAs); whereas General Purpose computers compute by making connections in time. 5 Why is FPGA Computing Interesting? Some applications are poorly suited to microprocessor Signal processing, odd-bit width application, VLSI explosion provides increasing resources.
