Have anyone studied Pan's Algorithm previously ? http://people.eecs.berkeley.edu/~alanmi/publications/2005/iwls05_smr.pdf#page=3...

Have anyone studied Pan's Algorithm previously ? http://people.eecs.berkeley.edu/~alanmi/publications/2005/iwls05_smr.pdf#page=3 https://i.imgur.com/GO8s4BU.png 1. How is Pan's algorithm being a shortest-path algorithm when clock period is computed across the critical path (longest path) ? 2. Any idea about the modified version of Pan's algorithm described in Figure 2 on page ...

Most sorting algorithms I've noticed seem to have an interface somewhat like this: void someAlgorithm ( elemType[] elements); So to implement this algorithm an application needs to fill the {elements} array, call the {someAlgorithm()} algorithm, and then read out the (sorted) elements of {elements}. For an {elements} object that contains n {elemType}s, how long does it take to fi

Hi, I have a problem that does not do what is expected. I have several modules linked together from top to bottom. Each module has 3 error output signals: Error_O, Error_Level_O, and Error_Code_O. If a module has an error, Error_O = '1', Error_Level_O and Error_Code_O have their proper error info. There are 3 arrays to correct that information from each of those modules: Error_O_m(), Error_...

Hi, It is a long time headache for me to increase a data of std_logic_vector by 1. Here are examples: LIBRARY ieee; USE ieee.std_logic_1164.all; use ieee.numeric_std.all; constant ONE : std_logic_vector(7 downto 0); signal Series_Number : std_logic_vector(7 downto 0); ... All followings generate errors in VHDL-2002: Series_Number

Hi FPGA Experts, How can we measure ps of delays in FPGA with minimum area and good accuracy ? Today's TDC (Time to Digital Converter) architectures suffer lot of drawbacks like high gate utilization, High number of delay cells required for high resolution, Longer dead time, dependant on PVT conditions etc. Regards Parth

Hi, I have a certain interest in a mathematical puzzle that I have not been able to solve using a normal CPU, and I thought that using an FPGA could work. For this, I would like to assign some work packages to search for certain numbers to the FPGA, which then processes them and returns the data, plus an indication that it has finished with that particular package. The task at hand i...
