Research output: Contribution to conferencePaperpeer-review


The channel segmentation design problem for symmetrical FPGAs is the problem of designing segmented tracks in the interconnection channels that provides good net routability and delay performance at the same time. In this paper, we show how to separate the problem into the segmentation design problems of the vertical and horizontal channels by a statistical analysis of the net distribution on a symmetrical FPGA. And we propose an effective approach for segmented channel design when the allowed number of tracks in a channel is fixed and limited.
