Baraglia R., Hidalgo J. I., Lanchares J., Perego R., Tirado F. A Parallel Compact Genetic Algorithm for multi-FPGA Partitioning. In: Euromicro Workshop on Parallel and Distributed Processing (Mantova, 2001). Proceedings, IEEE, 2001.
In this paper we investigate the design of a compact genetic algorithm to solve Multi-FPGA Partitioning problems. Nowadays Multi-FPGA systems are used for a great variety of applications such as dynamically re-configurable hardware applications, digital circuit emulation, and numerical computation. Both a sequential and a parallel version of a compact genetic algorithm (cGA) have been designed and implemented on a cluster of workstations. The peculiarities of the cGA permits to save memory in order to address large Multi-FPGA Parfitioning problems, while the exploitation of parallelism allows to reduce execution times. The good results achieved on several experiments conduced on different Multi-FPGA Partitioning instances show that this solution is viable to solve Multi-FPGA Partitioning problems.
