Abstract:


In reconfigurable computing systems, full reconfigurable FPGA are evolving rapidly, due to their flexibility and high performance. In this paper, we focus on communication cost between partitions in order to develop an algorithm to solve temporal partitioning problems for full reconfigurable architecture. In fact, this algorithm optimizes the transfer of data required between design partitions. The proposed algorithm was tested on several examples on the Xilinx Virtex-II pro. The results show significant reduction in the communication cost compared with others famous approaches used in this field
