Functional Decomposition with Applications to FPGA Synthesis
Christoph SchollISBN: 0792375858;
During the last few years Field Programmable Gate Arrays (FPGAs) have become increasingly important. Thanks to recent breakthroughs in technology, FPGAs offer millions of system gates at low cost and considerable speed. Functional decomposition has emerged as an essential technique in automatic logic synthesis for FPGAs. Functional decomposition as a technique to find realizations for Boolean functions was already introduced in the late fifties and early sixties by Ashenhurst, Curtis, Roth and Karp. In recent years, however, it has attracted a great deal of renewed attention, for several reasons. First, it is especially well suited for the synthesis of lookup-table based FPGAs. Also, the increased capacities of today's computers as well as the development of new methods have made the method applicable to larger-scale problems. Modern techniques for functional decomposition profit from the success of Reduced Ordered Binary Decision Diagrams (ROBDDs), data structures that provide...
