The Price of Routing in FPGAs
: Studying the architectural evolution of mainstream field programmable gate arrays (FPGAs) leads to the following remark: in these circuits, the proportion of silicon devoted to reconfigurable routing is increasing, reducing the proportion of silicon available for computation resources. A quantitative analysis shows that this trend, if pursued, will lead to a widening gap between FPGA performance and VLSI performance. Some prospective solutions to this problem are discussed. Key Words: FPGA, reconfigurable computing, routing resources, hardware complexity Category: B.7
