  • Applications of TORC: An Open Toolkit for Reconfigurable Computing 

    Couch, Jacob Donald (Virginia Tech, 2011-08-05)
    Two research projects are proposed that rely on Tools for open Reconfigurable Computing (TORC) and the openness of the Xilinx tool chain. The first project, the Embedded FPGA Transmitter, relies on the ability to add ...
  • BitMaT - Bitstream Manipulation Tool for Xilinx FPGAs 

    Morford, Casey Justin (Virginia Tech, 2005-12-15)
    With the introduction of partially reconfigurable FPGAs, we are now able to perform dynamic changes to hardware running on an FPGA without halting the operation of the design. Module based partial reconfiguration allows ...
  • Communication Synthesis for MIMO Decoder Matrices 

    Quesenberry, Joshua Daniel (Virginia Tech, 2011-08-09)
    The design in this work provides an easy and cost-efficient way of performing an FPGA implementation of a specific algorithm through use of a custom hardware design language and communication synthesis. The framework is ...
  • Design and Implementation of an FPGA-based Partially Reconfigurable Network Controller 

    Chaubal, Aditya Prakash (Virginia Tech, 2004-08-23)
    There is currently a strong trend towards embedding Internet capabilities into electronics and everyday appliances. Most network controllers used in small appliances or for specialized purposes are built using micro ...

  • A Device-Level FPGA Simulator 

    Hunter, Jesse Everett III (Virginia Tech, 2000-04-07)
    In the realm of FPGAs, many tool vendors offer behaviorally-based simulators aimed at easing the complexity of large FPGA designs. At times, a behaviorally-modeled design does not work in hardware as expected or intended. ...

  • Improving Field-Programmable Gate Array Scaling Through Wire Emulation 

    Fong, Ryan Joseph Lim (Virginia Tech, 2004-09-03)
    Field-programmable gate arrays (FPGAs) are excellent devices for high-performance computing, system-on-chip realization, and rapid system prototyping. While FPGAs offer flexibility and performance, they continue to lag ...
  • A Scalable Approach to Multi-core Prototyping 

    Newcomb, Jamie David (Virginia Tech, 2008-01-25)
    In recent years, multi-core processors and multi-processor networks have grown in popularity as a solution to the limits on increasing clock speed, rising power consumption, and the nanometer manufacturing processes. ...
  • A Standalone Wire Database for Routing and Tracing in Xilinx Virtex, Virtex-E, and Virtex-II FPGAs 

    Steiner, Neil Joseph (Virginia Tech, 2002-08-30)
    Modern FPGAs contain routing resources easily exceeding millions of wires. While mainstream design flows and place-and-route tools make very good use of these routing resources, they do so at the cost of very significant ...
