Abstract:

Synthesis and Partitioning for Adaptive and Reconfigurable Computing Systems SPARCS is a computer aided engineering environment for reconfigurable computers. SPARCS contains software implementations of a variety of methods and algorithms for various subproblems for automating the task of producing designs for multi-FPGA Field Programmable Gate Array based reconfigurable computers. The SPARCS system includes tools for temporal partitioning, spatial partitioning, high-level synthesis, physical design, and arbiter synthesis. This is a comprehensive report on the SPARCS project, describing various techniques developed for solving these problems. In addition, this report contains some experimental results demonstrating the effectiveness of the SPARCS tools.
