Field programmable gate array (FPGA) is an important VLSI technology. Many algorithms have been proposed for the synthesis of FPGAs, but most of them concern issues in technology-mapping. The authors present a new logic minimization algorithm MR (maximal reduction) for the minimization of FPGA networks using lookup-tables. Information is obtained on how to remove the lookup tables by using network resynthesis techniques. Order-independent and global optimal results are obtained by formulating the lookup-table minimization problem as a maximum independent set problem. Experimental results show that MR can significantly improve the designs obtained by existing FPGA synthesis algorithms
