Abstract:
In this paper, the EX-VPR tool, which used for architecture level exploration, is presented. This tool belongs to an integrated framework (MEANDER) for mapping applications into a fine-grain reconfigurable platform (FPGA). Having as input VHDL description of an application, the framework produces the appropriate configuration bitstream. The proposed tool framework supports a variety of FPGA architectures. Additionally, a novel power aware switch box is proposed. Quantitative comparisons with existing switch boxes are provided, yielding promising results.
