An effective fault diagnosis approach for reconfigurable VLSI/WSI array processors is presented.
The proposed methodology can be applied to the reconfigurable computing systems with reconfigurable array processors or FPGA-based reconfigurable systems to enhance the system yield and reliability.
Application processors can be divided into 3 groups in terms of design: one is array processors with a single ARM kernel; another is ARM kernels with DSP; and the last one is gate-level logic circuit design.
Papers from the conference report on work in areas such as configurable computing machines, parallel connection architectures, array processors, and energy and performance optimizations, and describe recent work in memory and processor synthesis, matrix and imaging designs, cryptographic and coding applications, and parallel processing and arithmetic.
Also, using logical rows and columns, reconfiguration messages travel along the data paths that have been established by previous reconfigurations, either static or dynamic, which means that the array processors use the same communication lines for application communications and reconfiguration communications.
Chapter I - Array Processors and Mapping, deals with the fundamental concepts and designs of systolic/wavefront, concurrent, and parallel VLSI array processors which serve as the platforms for high-performance signal processing.
