The 25 Best Papers from FPGA

 

I know there are a lot of students out there who are part of the Xilinx University Program, and I also know that when you write your Masters and PhD Thesis (as well as any technical paper) you need to find and cite the appropriate references.  So, here is a link to the best 25 papers at the FPGA conference which is held yearly in Monterey, California.  The papers are from 1994 up to 2010 and include insights that drove the products and shaped the research in the FPGA field.  Accompanying each paper is an endorsement written by a well-known expert in the field, explaining the reasons for that paper’s selection.  And, of course, with each paper there are more references.  The proceedings of this conference are published in the ACM (and often the papers are also found on the IEEE website), so you’ll need ACM (or IEEE) library access to get them online.  Most colleges and universities have access to these libraries, so this should be no problem to those of you who need this information.

 

These works have been collected to represent those papers which have had the greatest impact on the field.  Here we have authors from all the FPGA companies and from all over academia.  Here one gets a good sense of what is important, what matters, and what the problems are.  The book also has an excellent paper in it written this year:  “Three Ages of FPGAs,” by Steve Trimberger.  It chronicles the development of the FPGA industry.  Steve’s insight into this industry is exceptional, as he has seen it from the nearly the beginning.
