Abstract: Field Programmable Gate Arrays have been demonstrated to deliver significant speed-ups in various applications. Even with the ongoing advancement in semiconductor manufacturing technology, designing larger FPGAs is getting more difficult due to increasing area overheads of routing network, clock skew and decreasing yields with large die sizes. Then using such large devices is also an issue due to larger runtime of tools. Finally, due to lack of thermal management, hotspots can cause reliability issues in such large systems. Envisioning that run-time reconfigurable computing will be a part of mainstream computing, first we design a scalable FPGA architecture to address issues related to scalability. Second we address the issues related to productivity of tools by designing an abstract framework for resources management of multi-FPGA systems. Then we extend the framework to support multi-FPGA systems by developing a scalable AXI interconnect. Finally, design a low-overhead temperature sensor-array to allow thermal management.
