In this paper, we present a fast algorithm for finding empty area on the FPGA surface with some rectangular tasks placed on it. We use a staircase datastructure to report the empty area in the form of a list of maximal empty rectangles. We model the FPGA surface using an innovative encoding scheme that improves runtime and reduces memory requirement of our algorithm. Worst-case time complexity of our algorithm is O(xy) where x is number of columns, y is number of rows and x.y is the total number of cells on t…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
