This work evaluates the potential application of emerging non-volatile memory technologies to reconfigurable architectures based on hybrid CMOS/resistive-switching FPGAs. The non-volatility of these devices lends them well to designs requiring low power consumption and reduced configuration time at power up. These memory technologies are assessed based on their effectiveness for use as interconnect routing switches in terms of programming power, reliability, scalability, and fabrication cost. The feasibility of architectural integration and innovations in reconfigurable architecture for non-volatile memories are also discussed. With sufficient redundancy and defect-tolerance, hybrid FPGA architectures may facilitate the integration of emerging non-volatile memory technologies with reconfigurable logic.
