    The article briefly reviews some of the important characteristics of a range of families of programmable logic devices and gives an idea of the complexity of the parts. However, it is only by using the parts in an actual design to be implemented that one gets a true measure of their relative merits. The products considered include: Altera MAX range of logic array blocks (e.g. EP5000 and EP7000 ser... View full abstract»

    The article discusses the use of PLDs as a prototype in system design. This is illustrated using an example of a programme of work undertaken at Roke Manor Research Ltd. to design the bursting and control logic for a digital cordless telephone application (DECT, Digital European Cordless Telecommunications) using Actel PLDs. The design process used is described in detail and the article shows how ... View full abstract»

    A new class of universal computers, cellular array machines, is introduced. The development of reprogrammable logic leading up to the development of field programmable gate arrays is reviewed. An architecture for constructing modular and scalable general-purpose computers from reprogrammable logic is presented. It is shown that such a machine can be programmed by translating Occam into asynchronou... View full abstract»

    Xilinx Field Programmable Gate Arrays (FPGAs) are used to implement reconfigurable special purpose computing hardware for computationally intensive many-body problems in physics and mathematics. The inexpensive PC-based design environment used for this work is described, and the performance for several different problems of the resulting reconfigurable hardware is compared with that of some genera...

    Field programmable gate arrays (FPGAs) have the potential to revolutionise the design of modern computer systems. With the current generation of reconfigurable arrays, the distinction between hardware, software and firmware blurs, permitting the designer to mix and match according to application. The promise of logic systems that can be configured in fractions of a second holds out the very real p... View full abstract»

    The article presents the architectural design and implementation of a Lisp machine Lisp M1 developed at Xian Jiaotong University in China. Approaches adopted by Lisp M1 to support the execution of Lisp programs are discussed. Techniques used to implement the machine are presented. A speed comparison between Lisp M1 and some conventional computers and special purpose Lisp machines is also given. Th... View full abstract»
